2 women charged after shooting in northwestern Alberta
Two women were charged Friday — one with attempted murder — after a shooting at a home in Berwyn, Alta.
RCMP were called at 6:30 a.m. Thursday about a shooting. They found a victim who was suffering non-life-threatening injuries but the suspect vehicle had left the scene, RCMP said.
Later in the day, during a patrol, an officer found the suspect vehicle in Grimshaw, about 11 kilometres northeast of Berwyn. One of the suspects connected to the shooting was taken into custody along with another woman.
