“I could hear this pop, pop, pop, pop,” neighbour David Normandin said, recalling what happened on Saturday. He was using his tablet in the back bedroom of his trailer, two doors over from the trailer at C-20 1120 Shawnigan Lake-Mill Bay Rd where Chris Bloomfield lived with his mother Marilyn Bloomfield.
Normandin thought it was fireworks “and then police started showing up and ambulances.”
Shawnigan Lake police, following up on an assault investigation, entered the home shortly after noon with the intention of arresting a lone male, Dawn Roberts, director in charge of B.C. RCMP communications, said in a statement.
