A female victim has walked herself into the emergency room at Hamilton General Hospital for treatment of a gunshot wound.
Hamilton Police now say that the 21 year old suffered the non-life threatening wound during an altercation in an alley near Cannon and Kensington Streets late Monday afternoon.
The victim actually waited about an hour-and-a-half before seeking treatment, prompting earlier reports that there may have been a second shooting in the area of the hospital. Police stress that was not the case.
Investigators also stress that the shooting is not considered a “random” attack.
