A man accused of a shooting in North Battleford will go to trial this summer.

Timothy Leask, 45, appeared at North Battleford Provincial Court via video link Wednesday. He is facing numerous criminal charges, including aggravated assault, assault with a weapon, pointing a firearm, discharging a firearm at a person with intent to wound, uttering threats, and possession of a prohibited weapon.

Leask's case has been scheduled for trial at provincial court June 20 and 21. His legal counsel said Leask intends to enter not guilty pleas to all the charges.

The RCMP said a man was hospitalized after he was shot with a shotgun in the leg Jan. 15 at a 104th St. residence in North Battleford. 

Leask is presumed innocent at this stage.
