Homicide update – man charged
The Calgary Police Service has made significant progress in a two-year-old homicide, arresting one man, identifying a second and seeking public assistance in identifying a third.
At approximately 3:35 a.m., on Saturday, Nov. 27, 2010, officers responded to the report of someone being shot at Our Place Pub & Grill, 3709 26 Ave. N.E.
Police discovered the victim, Dexter BAIN, 36, who was a bartender at the pub, suffering from gunshot wounds. He later succumbed to his injuries. There were three people in the pub at the time of the shooting; two of whom were friends of the victim and a third was a patron.
It is believed the three culprits entered the pub via the back door, resulting in a confrontation with the victim. The culprits fled immediately after the shooting. Robbery appears to be the motive.
A check of neighborhood businesses for video surveillance resulted in the identification of two suspects, while one is still unknown. Additional video of who is believed to be the third suspect is being released to the public today. This video is available on the City of Calgary Newsroom.
The third suspect is described as an Aboriginal man, early 20s, 5’10” tall, wearing a black winter jacket with light-coloured lining, a checkered shirt, blue T-shirt and a black toque.
Yesterday, Monday, Feb. 27, 2012, police arrested Kyle Victor LEDESMA, 25, of Calgary, and charged him with second-degree murder. LEDESMA was arrested at the Calgary Remand Centre where he was being held on unrelated matters.
