Targeted home invasion in Kamloops
The RCMP say there was a targeted home invasion on Kamloops North shore early Wednesday morning.

There was a fight and a mask being worn by one of the female suspects came off. Several things inside the home were stolen. Police say they think the suspects knew the people in the home and say the public should not be worried. The 4 people are believed to have got away in a black car.

Shuswap winery considers rebuilding after large fire
The owners of a Shuswap based winery are trying to decide if they will re-build. Last week the bottling building and the majority of the stock at the Granite Creek Estate winery were destroyed in a fire. Gary Kennedy says much of the wine was high-end vintages aging for up to 5 years. Kennedy says one option is to re-build and let his children run the winery. But he says he and his wife would miss the day to day operations of the winery they have been running for the last 10 years.
