A woman was found unconscious in Sagamore with a gunshot wound to the head last Thursday evening, November 19.

The Bourne Police Department confirmed the woman was found on Canal Street.

Bourne police officers and firefighters responded to the scene. Reports of the incident went out around 5:10 PM.

A medical helicopter was requested to transport the victim to the trauma center at Rhode Island Hospital in Providence.

Initially, Bourne police transmitted an all-points bulletin to be on the lookout for a white male in his mid-20s on a mountain bike with a cast on his leg, wearing a dark-colored sweatshirt and a black knit cap.

Later, the department posted an update on its Facebook page: “The initial investigation determined this not to be a criminal matter and there are no individuals actively being searched for. We would like to thank all agencies [and] civilians that assisted.”
