A 35-year-old Cranberry Portage woman was in stable condition Sunday after being struck by a bullet while working in her front yard. Police have been following up on several reports from residents but as of yesterday had not arrested anyone in connection with the shooting. "This doesn't appear to be related to any other ongoing investigation at this time," said Cpl. Doug Ashton. Police received a report that a small calibre firearm had been fired in the vicinity of the incident, which occurred on Railway Avenue. The victim was struck in the pelvis region at about 5:30 p.m. Sunday while conducting yard work, police said. She was taken to the Flin Flon General Hospital before being transported to the Winnipeg Health Sciences Centre in stable condition on Sunday night. Police believe the shooter was not in close proximity to the victim. They did not know the type of bullet used because it remained lodged in the victim. The police investigation continues. Cranberry Portage RCMP ask that anyone with information contact them at 472-3611 or Manitoba Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS. Crimestoppers will pay up to $2,000 in cash and callers never have to reveal their identity.
