Red Deer RCMP are investigating a targeted shooting that sent a man to hospital with a gunshot wound to his leg, and are looking for public assistance to identify the two men who dropped him off at the hospital shortly before 8 p.m. Tuesday night.

RCMP were called to the hospital at 7:40 p.m. on July 11th after a man was dropped off at the emergency doors with a gunshot wound to his leg.

The two men who dropped him off then drove away in a newer model dark grey four-door Dodge Ram, and RCMP are asking for public assistance to identify them.

The driver is described as Caucasian with a darker complexion, approximately 5’10” tall, approximately 30 years old with short brown hair in a buzz cut style and wearing a dark coloured t-shirt, dark shorts and dark shoes.

Red Deer RCMP were able to confirm that the victim and his assailant were known to each other but were not able to get details of the shooting or the identity or description of the suspect from the victim.

RCMP continue to work to determine the identity of the suspect or suspects, the location where the shooting took place, and the identities of the two men who dropped the victim off at the hospital. The victim was treated for his gunshot wound and released from hospital.

At this point in the investigation, police believe the incident was targeted and that there is no danger to the general public.
