We are asking for the public’s help to identify two vehicles believed to have information regarding a shooting that happened last week in Crescent Heights.
At approximately 9 p.m., on Thursday, Aug. 19, 2021, police were called to the 200 block of 11 Avenue N.E., for multiple reports of gun shots. Upon arrival, police found evidence of a shooting and a male victim suffering from what appeared to be a gunshot wound. The victim was transported to hospital in non-life-threatening condition.
