It was a shocking scene in Penticton this morning where a man was shot dead at a rental apartment complex.
Shots rang out around 10:30 a.m. at the complex, as witnesses described hearing loud banging on doors just before the shots were fired.
Neighbour Christian Klausen says the victim stumbled down the stairs and collapsed.
“Someone screamed ‘we need to get a towel on his organs,’ so I went down there and I gave him my housecoat.”
"He put pillow underneath his head and guy was still alive, he was breathing all the way up to the point when the paramedics arrived." pic.twitter.com/XDe5h4CI49
