RCMP say a 60-year-old man has been charged with attempted murder after a weekend shooting in New Hazelton.
Medical staff notified police Saturday October 14th that they were treating a person with what appeared to be gunshot wounds.
Few details have been released, but police say their investigation led to the arrest of Ronald Fowler, who along with the attempted murder charge, also faces a weapons charge.
Investigators say Fowler and the victim are known to each other and RCMP don’t believe the public is at risk.
Fowler remains in custody pending his next court appearance.
