RCMP on scene downtown

Red Deer RCMP are on scene in a downtown alley after a man received non-life-threatening injuries in a drive-by assault.

The RCMP officers were investigating the incident between 48 and 49 Avenue on 50 Street Monday afternoon.

RCMP were called to the alley shortly after 2 p.m. after a man was injured by what police believe may be a BB gun.

RCMP are looking for a smaller blue two-door car that sped from the area and believe that the assault was targeted and the public is not in danger.

The victim is being treated at a hospital for his injuries.

The alleyway was blocked Monday afternoon.
