On March 27th, 2011 at approximately 6:30 a.m., Terrace RCMP responded to a report that a male had been shot and was lying on the street near the Terrace Sportsplex. Upon attendance, police found a male suffering from a gunshot wound to the leg. A witness stated that he heard a shot and shortly found the male lying on the ground.

Police launched an extensive investigation and determined that the witness and the victim were in a nearby apartment. Another male had a handgun that he was playing around with when it accidentally discharged, hitting his friend in the shin. The victim and witness moved outside in an obvious attempt to distract police from the scene of the incident.

After a full day of piecing the details of this incident together, police arrested Andrew Collins, 40 years old of Terrace. He has been charged with Criminal Negligence Causing Bodily Harm, Possession of a Restricted Weapon, Possession of a Weapon Without a Firearms Licence and Breach of Undertaking. He has appeared in court and has been remanded into custody. The victim was treated in hospital and released. The handgun was recovered by police. Alcohol was a significant contributing factor in this incident.
