Amanpreet Bal, 29, was last year’s homicide victim in Kelowna

KELOWNA RCMP noted last week that it was the one-year anniversary of the Trumpeter Court homicide investigation and identified the victim as 29-year-old Amanpreet Bal in the hopes of advancing their investigation.

Cpl. Jocelyn Noseworthy said that Bal had moved to the Kelowna area from the Lower Mainland just before the homicide, adding: “We believe this shooting was connected to ongoing criminal activity at that time, the details of which we are not releasing.”

Just before midnight on March 24, 2020, Kelowna RCMP responded to numerous complaints of gunfire in the area of Trumpeter Court. Officers located a deceased adult male in the front seat of a vehicle in the 300-block of Trumpeter Court.

The Kelowna RCMP Serious Crime Unit (SCU) assumed carriage of the investigation and determined that this appeared to be a targeted shooting, but despite a thorough investigation, no arrests have been made at this time.
