A 57-year old woman who was rushed to Health Sciences North last night suffered serious but non-life threatening injuries from a gunshot wound.

Police received a call around 6:15 last night about a disturbance at 44 Sunny street off Old Skead Road in Garson.

Uniformed officers and members of the tactical unit responded and they’ve remained at the scene ever since.

This morning around 4:00, a Barrie police tactical support unit arrived to assist with the ongoing and active investigation.

A 63-year old man who knows the victim remains in the residence.

Neighbouring residents were allowed to leave their homes but vehicle traffic in the area will be restricted until the situation is cleared up.

Police are asking community members to stay clear of the area and NOT live stream footage of the officers at the scene.

Further updates will be provided as the incident evolves.
