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.
