RCMP says an innocent Williams Lake family is in shock after their house was shot at early Monday morning.
Corporal Dave Tyreman says the home in the 900 block of Western Avenue was hit by a number of bullets just after 4 a.m.
Tyreman says it appears that a case of mistaken identity lead to the incident.
Shortly after officers got on scene, another shot was heard from an unknown direction.
As a precaution, RCMP contacted the local school district, university campus, and area residents about the shooting and told them to keep everyone out of the area.
RCMP later arrested one person and seized a gun in connection with the incident. Officers notified the school district, university, and local residents that all was well.
The Williams Lake detachment is thanking the public for their patience during the situation.
