Man taken to hospital after shots fired

  • Print

Police cordoned off the area in a four-block radius around a house 500 block of McDermot Avenue after reports of a shooting Saturday morning.

From initial reports, not confirmed, there was a shooting this morning near a convenience store in the 500 block of William Avenue.

The victim apparently travelled on foot south on Juno Street for two blocks to what appears to be a rooming house on McDermot.

He was transported to hospital by paramedics. He is reported to have suffered an upper-body injury, which was not life-threatening, police said.

His condition is stable, according to police.

Peter Henderson, an area resident who lives on William, said he didn't hear anything. "Usually it's quiet because the police are very visible here," he said. "They're always at the 7-11 on the corner (of William and Isabel Street)."
