A 20-year-old Mission man was shot in the hand between late Sunday (Sept.30) night and early Monday (Oct. 1) morning, and now police are asking for the public's help.

Mounties were notified when the man showed up at Mission Memorial Hospital's emergency department with a gunshot wound to his left hand, but the victim is not cooperating.

“The victim states he was approached by four males in Centennial Park, at the corner of Seventh Avenue and Grand Street in Mission,” said Sgt. Peter Thiessen, acting spokesperson for Mission detachment. “He claims he was jumped and he raised his hand sustaining a single gunshot wound to his palm.”

The victim underwent surgery to repair the wound, and has been released from hospital.

The investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information is asked to call Mission RCMP at 604-826-7161 or Crimestoppers.
