New court appearances have been set up for two men arrested in connection with an alleged shootout in a rural subdivision east of Red Deer.

Police were called to a home in Balmoral Heights, directly east of Red Deer, just after midnight on Tuesday, March 19, to investigate reports that a man had been shot.

Moments later, Red Deer City RCMP allege discovering two men suffering gunshot wounds after a collision in the Northwood Estates mobile home park at the north side of the city.

Arrested at the scene were Brad Voykin, 23, of Red Deer County and city resident Joshua Hill, 26.

Voykin is to appear in Red Deer provincial court on Tuesday, charged with attempted murder with a firearm, extortion using a firearm, two counts of robbery with a firearm and possession of a prohibited firearm.

Hill is due back in court on April 11 on charges of attempted murder with a firearm, extortion using a firearm, two counts of robbery with a firearm and breaching conditions of a recognizance.

Both men remain in custody pending bail hearings.

The alleged victim was last reported to be in stable condition at Red Deer Regional Hospital Centre.
