Four days after a woman was shot behind a downtown Barrie building, city police remain tight-lipped about details surrounding the investigation.

A police spokesperson told BarrieToday on Tuesday no one has been arrested yet. 

A 59-year-old woman suffered serious injuries on Friday after the shooting on Lakeshore Mews, in the vicinity of Dunlop and Mulcaster streets. She was later airlifted to a Toronto hospital.

The crime scene is not far from Meridian Place and the city's waterfront.

The victim was said to be in "non-life-threatening condition," but there has been no update on her condition since Sunday morning. Police have not said where on her body she was struck.

Officers responded to the initial call around 4:30 p.m. on Nov. 24.

On Saturday, detectives investigating in the area said it was not a random attack.

An area behind the Dunlop Street East buildings, known as Lakeshore Mews, was cordoned off with police tape until late Friday night. 

Police at the scene earlier told BarrieToday that the shooting scene is located at the rear of the building at 133 Dunlop St. E.

Officers could also be seen on the fire-escape stairway part way up the back of the building on Friday evening.

The investigation is ongoing.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Barrie police.
