In 2021, we partnered with the Bolo Program to amplify our search for Kier Bryan GRANADO. Today, Tuesday, Oct. 18, 2022, the Bolo Program announced that GRANADO has moved to the second spot in their list of Canada’s Top 25 Most Wanted and has added a second Calgary suspect, Talal AMER to their list in the sixth spot.

At approximately 11:10 p.m., on Tuesday, May 10, 2022, we received multiple reports of two vehicles that were driving erratically along 36 Street S.E., while involved in a shooting. The vehicles collided with two additional uninvolved vehicles in the intersection of 36 Street and 17 Avenue S.E., and one suspect fled the scene.
The incident resulted in the death of Angela McKenzie, 40, a driver of one of the uninvolved vehicles. Several homes were also struck by gunfire during the incident.
Talal AMER, 29, of Calgary, is wanted on seven Canada-wide warrants in relation to this incident, including manslaughter, attempted murder, reckless discharge of a firearm, possession of a prohibited firearm with an obliterated serial number, unauthorized possession of a prohibited firearm, possession of a prohibited firearm and possession of a prohibited device.
AMER is described as approximately 5’11” tall, 230 pounds, with brown eyes and brown hair.

About Bolo Program
The Bolo Program is a breakthrough initiative leveraging social media, technology, and innovative engagement to encourage citizens to be on the lookout for Canada’s most wanted, so they can help keep their communities safe. The term ‘BOLO’, which stands for “be on the lookout,” is commonly used to designate actively wanted suspects.
Through its Top 25 of Canada’s most wanted, the Bolo Program reaches citizens at the right time, at the right place, and by using the right means to encourage citizens to be on the lookout. The Program exclusively features priority wanted notices for which Canadian police services have already requested the public’s assistance. In cooperation with Canadian police services and Crime Stoppers, the Program then launches amplification campaigns for specific priority cases, on multiple platforms and over extended periods of time, and offers major financial rewards as incentives for citizens to be on the boloprogram.org lookout and submit tips to the authorities.
