Man shot shows up at hospital

CORNWALL – A police investigation is underway after a man suffering from a gunshot wound ended up at the McConnell Avenue hospital Tuesday (July 31).

Investigators say the man had a gunshot wound in his upper torso and was treated and released from CCH.

He’s expected to be okay, the Cornwall Community Police Service (CCPS) said.

The CCPS Criminal Investigations Division believe it’s an isolated incident between two people who knew each other and there’s no risk to the general public.

“The investigation is in the early stages, all avenues are being carefully explored. At this stage of the investigation we would not like to speculate on the circumstances as it may compromise the integrity of the investigation,” Staff Sgt. Chad Maxwell said.
