RCMP said they found a man suffering from gunshot wounds outside the Dawson Creek hospital emergency entrance in the early hours of Saturday morning. According to RCMP, the man had been forced into a pickup truck by multiple people in the parking lot of Dawson Creek's Bergeron Funeral Home between 10:30 p.m. and midnight Friday night. He was then taken to a rural location and shot several times.
Police said he managed to drag himself to a roadway, where he was picked up and brought to hospital. Global is reporting that police believe the matter is drug related and is the result of ongoing gang violence in the Peace Region.
There has been a history of drug related violence in Dawson Creek which is just outside of Prince George. The drug trade in Prince George is controlled by the Hells Angels. One local cabbie was bold enough to post a Youtube video that mentioned locals believe the Hells angles are involved with the violence in Dawson Creek too.
