Police are looking for an "armed and dangerous" 21-year-old Edmonton man who has been charged in connection to a shooting in Yellowknife earlier this month.

In the early morning of Nov. 11, Yellowknife RCMP responded to reports of a shooting in the area of 51A Avenue. They found a man suffering from multiple gunshot wounds.

The injured man was taken to hospital in life-threatening condition, and remains there, according to a Tuesday RCMP news release.

A warrant for Shiferaw-Reid was also issued. He's described as between 6 foot 4 inches and 6 foot 5 inches in height.
