RCMP are investigating following a shooting in Eckville last week.

Police say they were alerted to shots being fired at a house on the outskirts of town at just after 9 p.m. last Wednesday (Sept. 2).

Upon their arrival, they found two males seriously injured. The males were taken to hospital for treatment.

STARS Air Ambulance reported on Twitter shortly after 9 p.m. that one of its Edmonton-based units had been dispatched to a call in the Eckville area.

The victims’ medical conditions weren’t known by press time, but according to RCMP Insp. Gibson Glavin, police were “not dealing with any potential homicide” related to the shooting.

RCMP have advised that the public is not in any danger.

Several investigational teams are looking into the incident. More information is expected to be released later this week.
