GRIMSHAW, A.B. – The Peace Regional RCMP have arrested one man in relation to a shooting that occurred in the Grimshaw area on the evening of February 12th.
Shortly after 9:00 p.m., the Peace Regional RCMP responded to a call where a man was found to have been shot before he walked into a local store and locked himself in the bathroom. When police arrived, they located a vehicle in the parking lot with smashed out windows.
