Regina police are investigating after two shootings in the city overnight.
They occurred within minutes of each other, just before 1 a.m. CST.
According to police, a 20-year-old man was found with a small calibre gunshot wound to his right shoulder, lying on the sidewalk outside a home on the 1100 block of Cameron Street.
That call at 12:57 a.m., was followed three minutes later by a 911 call just a few blocks away in the 1300 block of Garnet St.
A 24-year-old man with a small calibre gunshot wound to his neck had walked up to a woman and her friend asking for help.
Both men were reportedly in stable condition in hospital Tuesday morning, with what police described as non-life-threatening injuries.
For residents in the north central neighbourhood, violence like this leaves them on edge. Betty Hamilton has lived in the area for six years.
"I feel a lot of it could be prevented if the police would pay attention to what the people of North Central are asking them, in particular, would you please show a police presence." said Hamilton.
She said more needs to be done on the ground in the community.
"I don't want to hear crime stats. I know what's going on in my neighbourhood. Give us a solution. And I think part of the solution, again, would be to have a police presence," said Hamilton.
