CALGARY - RCMP are investigating reports of a shooting outside a busy shopping mall north of Calgary.
A 42-year-old man who is known to Calgary police apparently was shot in the head near CrossIron Mills, a shopping complex at Balzac, Alta.
Police were notified when the man walked into Calgary's Peter Lougheed hospital with head wounds after being dropped off there by his girlfriend.
Police say he is not cooperating with investigators and has been transferred to Foothills Hospital for treatment for non-life-threatening injuries.
The shooter is still at large.
