Yellowknife RCMP is looking for a person that allegedly carried out a shooting last Thursday.
It took police more than 48 hours to notify the public of the incident.
In the early morning of Nov. 11, officers arrived at the scene in the area of 51A Ave. and found a man that had been shot multiple times. The man was taken to Stanton hospital with life-threatening injuries, according to police.
While the photo of the alleged suspect is quite clear, police say they still do not have the man’s identity.
CKLB asked RCMP how it obtained a photo without a name.
“I recognize that it’s a strange set of circumstances but I can’t divulge the photo’s source at this time. All I can say is the person in the picture is the suspect of this shooting and that investigators do not know his legal identity,” said Cst. Matt Halstead, RCMP spokesperson.
Residents with information can contact RCMP at 867-669-1111 or contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477, nwtnutips.com, or text: “nwtnutips” and a message to 274637.
