One man is in serious condition after an early morning shooting near the Argyll Casino.
EPS Staff Sgt. Doug Fedechko says it happened just before 6:00am near a restaurant at 72 Street and Argyll Road.
“Essentially what we’ve got is a situation of shots fired and it’s not directly outside the Argyll Casino, it’s just that that’s where part of our evidence trail has led to, but it actually occurred down the street,” said Fedechko.
The northeast bound lanes of Argyll Road from 72 Street to 76 Avenue were blocked off Sunday morning while police investigated.
“At this point one victim has been taken to hospital with multiple gunshot wounds, but at this point things are progressing nicely where we believe the victim will likely survive his injuries.”
Fedechko says police are following several leads, but no suspects are in custody. (djs)
