Double shooting in PEI unconfirmed by RCMP

MONTAGUE, P.E.I. - The RCMP has not yet confirmed reports that two people were shot Wednesday evening along a rural road south of Montague, P.E.I.

A suspect is reportedly at large in the area, but the RCMP have denied there is a manhunt underway despite some roads being sealed off.

The Charlottetown Guardian quotes a nearby resident as saying a father and son were found along the road at about 9 p.m. at the father's home.

The RCMP would only say that a high-risk incident was underway and that further details were unlikely to be released until Thursday morning.
