ONE man was killed and another left critically injured following a shooting incident that took place on Church Street on Tuesday afternoon.

ER24 paramedics arrived on the scene at 3.45 pm to find the local authorities already in attendance.

On closer inspection, medics found a 29-year-old man lying on the pavement. They assessed the man and found that he had sustained several gunshot wounds and was in a critical condition.

The man was treated for his injuries and provided with advanced life support interventions before he was transported to a nearby provincial hospital. Whilst treating the man, medics were alerted to another patient on Raven Street. On arrival, medics found a man lying on the side of the road.

On assessment, medics found that the man had sustained a gunshot wound to his head and had diminished vital signs.

Medics immediately initiated CPR and advanced life support interventions, an operation lasting 30 minutes. Unfortunately, no vital signs returned, and the man was declared dead. The details surrounding this incident are not yet known.
