Two men were found injured at an apartment complex on the west side of Leduc Friday afternoon, after police were called to investigate a report of shots possibly being fired.

In a news release, RCMP said they responded to the complex at 105 Westhaven Drive at 2:08 p.m. Police and paramedics found two men who suffered “what appear to be non-life-threatening gunshot wounds.”

RCMP said there was a significant police presence at the scene as they tried to identify a suspect or suspects and conduct a physical search of the area.

“The general public is asked to avoid the area to allow the RCMP room to work and manage this situation,” police said.

“This is not believed to be a random incident.”
