Red Deer RCMP are looking for witnesses following a shooting in the city on Wednesday evening that has left a man in life-threatening condition.

They also said that the shooting was not a random act and at this time there is no risk for public safety.

The victim was transported to a Calgary hospital where he is in critical condition.

The incident occurred at about 5:30 p.m. on Kerry Wood Mews, which is just off Kerry Wood Drive between 59th Street and 58A and 59th Streets in the Riverside Meadows neighbourhood.

RCMP are still conducting neighbourhood interviews.

Bystanders at the scene on Wednesday said that it looked like the man was bleeding heavily. Cody Robertson had stopped to help but then paramedics arrived right away. He said the man wasn’t moving and “It didn’t look good for him.”

An empty black SUV was parked on the street at the scene, with the door open and the man had been lying on the ground on the passenger side of the vehicle.

Anyone in the area at the time and who heard or saw anything related to the incident, or with information about the identity of the suspect, is asked to call Red Deer RCMP at 403-343-5575.

They can remain anonymous by calling Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or going online at www.tipsubmit.com.
