Man shot near Coalmont airlifted to hospital

A man was shot near Coalmont B.C. Saturday afternoon.

The victim was transported to hospital by air ambulance with non-life threatening injuries, according to RCMP.

The incident took place about five kilometres south of Coalmont, on private property.

The shooting was apparently preceded by a vehicle collision on a dirt road, near a shed.

While both vehicles sustained significant front end damage, one also had a shattered back passenger side window.

Officers interviewed two witnesses at the scene and the investigation is ongoing.
