Shooting in Edmonton tent city

The Edmonton Journal is reporting that "A man was shot and seriously injured near downtown Tuesday morning, and police are looking for help identifying four suspects and a vehicle."

"Edmonton police were called on a weapons complaint around 99 Street and 106 Avenue just before 7:30 a.m. Tuesday outside an encampment near Hope Mission. Witnesses told police a red Chevy Camaro pulled up and there was a “verbal dispute” between multiple suspects from the vehicle and a man staying in a tent. One of the suspects then reportedly pulled out a firearm and shot the complainant, before all four individuals fled the scene in the Camaro."

I obviously don't support gun violence. However, these lawless tent cities are magnets for crime and drug dealing. When we let drug dealing flourish, violent crime results.
