The Mounties are investigating what appears to have been an attempted murder in the Village of Chipman, just east of Fort Saskatchewan.
A man was shot while standing outside of a home on 48th Avenue in Chipman, around 3:20 p.m. Friday.
At last report, he was in an Edmonton hospital in stable condition, with his identity being withheld.
Fort Saskatchewan RCMP are now turning to the public for tips in the case, saying this does not appear to have been a random act. (td)
