A 23-year old woman was transported to hospital with gunshot wounds on Saturday night.

Halifax Regional Police were called to a residence on Spencer Avenue in Spryfield Saturday night after receiving reports of gunshots on the 0-100 block of the street.

The woman was located and taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
