A 22-year-old Albouystown man was on Saturday evening shot in his leg. Christopher Roberts remains a patient at the GPHC where he was rushed shortly after 8pm.
Hospital sources confirmed that he was a patient and that his condition was stable. Reports are that he had had an argument on Saturday afternoon with another man.
While this newspaper was shown where the incident occurred none of the residents wanted to speak on it or what fuelled the attack.
