St. Pierre Jolys RCMP have been investigating a shooting incident involving three Winnipegarea men going to butcher livestock in the La Barriere Park area east of La Salle.
According to RCMP, the three men, all well known to each other, were at a shop Nov. 20 on Waverley Road in the R.M. of Ritchot, preparing for the butchering work when a rifle held by a 23-year-old St. Adolphe man discharged.
The discharged shot struck a 59-year-old man from the R.M. of St. Andrews, who was reported in critical but stable condition on Nov. 21. No charges have yet been laid in the incident, RCMP said, adding the investigation was ongoing.
