Attempted murder suspect wanted in road rage incident
We continue to investigate a road rage incident involving a firearm that occurred in the city’s northwest yesterday morning.
On Wednesday, Feb. 16, 2022, at approximately 8:10 a.m., we received calls from citizens driving in the area of Stoney Trail and Nose Hill Drive northwest, who reported seeing what appeared to be two vehicles involved in a road rage incident. We continued to receive calls about the incident, and citizens were additionally reporting that they saw a firearm and heard gunshots in the area.
It is believed the incident began on Stoney Trail northwest between a white Chevrolet Cutaway van and an older model black Hyundai Santa Fe SUV. The incident continued as the vehicles exited Stoney Trail onto Nose Hill Drive northwest where they stopped at a red light. At this point, it is believed the occupants of both vehicles engaged in a verbal altercation and an individual from the SUV discharged a firearm in the direction of the van.
The driver of the van then fled towards the Tuscany area with the SUV following behind. At one point while the vehicles were in motion, the individual from the SUV shot directly at the driver of the van. The driver of the van ducked upon seeing the suspect pointing the firearm at him, and his window was shattered which caused him minor injuries.
Following the second shot, it is believed the suspect exited the SUV and fled on foot. Police later found the SUV abandoned.
The driver of the van called police to report he had been shot at and was involved in a road rage incident, and was located at Tuscany Hill and Tuscany Estates Drive N.W. The victim was transported to hospital with minor injures.
Patrol officers and our Canine Unit attended the scene and circulated the Tuscany area in search of the suspect. After reviewing evidence and gathering CCTV footage, investigators have identified the shooting suspect as Anthony Gregory FAVELL, 22. He is described as approximately 5’ to 5’8” tall, with a heavy build, and blonde or light brown hair.
A warrant has been issued for FAVELL’s arrest as he is facing charges for attempted murder, pointing a firearm, and discharging a firearm with intent. A photo of FAVELL can be found on The City of Calgary Newsroom.
