Prince Albert police have charged a third person in relation to a shooting last October that led to a 31-year-old man going to the hospital with gunshot wounds.

The victim has since been released from hospital.

Around 6:20 p.m. on Oct. 4 police responded to a call about gunshots near the intersection of 28th Street and 6th Avenue East. The suspects fled the scene in a vehicle.

Police were able to locate the suspect vehicle travelling at a high speed before crashing into a fence near the area of 28th Street and 6th Avenue East. An 18-year old woman and 20-year-old man were arrested nearby.

Both suspects were charged with attempted murder and numerous weapons-related offences.

As this incident was believed to be gang related, the Integrated Crime Reduction Team (ICRT) became involved in the investigation. The ICRT is an enhanced investigative unit that investigates gang violence.

After further investigation, a third suspect was identified.

Police arrested Keistin Blake Deschambault, 22, on Jan. 26 at a house in Prince Albert. Deschambault is charged with attempted murder, pointing a firearm, intentional discharge of a firearm, and numerous other offences as a result of this police investigation.
