A man was injured after a shooting in Vernon early Tuesday.
RCMP responded to a report that a man had been shot and injured in the 3900 block of 33rd Street, (just north of Rec Centre/Performing Arts Centre) around 2 am that morning.
“The victim, a 21 year old Vernon male, sustained non-life threatening injuries and was transported by BC Ambulance Service to the nearest medical facility,” says Cst. Kelly Brett.
