Officers found a man with serious but non-life-threatening injuries, who was taken to hospital.

Police said two people had approached the home, an altercation occurred and a firearm was discharged, injuring the victim.

As a result of investigation, Meadow Lake RCMP has charged two youths with attempted murder as well as “numerous other offences”. They are both wanted on warrants, police said.

Because the youths are under the age of 18, they cannot be named under the Youth Criminal Justice Act but police said they are exploring using a provision that allows the publication of a youth’s name under certain circumstances, including when it is necessary to assist in arresting them.
