Shooting Investigation Arrests - C15-223995
On October 24, 2015, shortly before 12:30 a.m. emergency personnel were dispatched to the area of Autumnwood Drive and Winakwa Road for the report of a person having been shot.

A female youth was found suffering from a single gunshot wound to the upper body.  She was transported to hospital in critical condition.
