UPDATE: 9:15 a.m.

Vernon RCMP confirm one person is dead and another in custody following a huge police presence at the Village Green Hotel this morning.

Const. Kelly Brett says police are investigating multiple scenes resulting from what is believed to be a targeted break and enter that turned violent overnight.

Just before 1 a.m., RCMP received a report of a break and enter in progress at a home on the 9800 block of Park Lane in Lavington. It was reported there were possible shots fired, resulting in one occupant of the home sustaining non-life-threatening injuries.

About half an hour later, police swarmed the Village Green Hotel, where one man was reported with an apparent gunshot injury. He has since died, police say.

RCMP have secured and are investigating multiple crime scenes, and believe that the two incidents may be related, says Brett.

Officers are examining the scenes for evidence and canvassing witnesses.

Police are expected to provide more details at a press conference at the Vernon detachment at 10:30 a.m.
