Woman charged with attempted murder

The Kings District RCMP General Investigation Section (GIS) has charged a woman with Attempted Murder after a shooting in Greenwood.

On February 19, 2023, at approximately 12:15 a.m., Kings District RCMP and Annapolis District RCMP, responded to a report of a shooting on Greenwood Rd. in Greenwood. RCMP officers learned that a man and a woman had entered a travel trailer, demanded money from the occupant and when the occupant refused, he was shot in the leg. The suspects then fled the scene.

The victim suffered serious but non-life-threatening injuries. RCMP Police Dog Services were called to the scene but were unable to locate the suspects.
