CCTV images released from February shooting
Investigators are looking for the public’s help to identify the suspects of a shooting that sent two men to hospital in February 2021.
On Tuesday, Feb. 9, 2021, at approximately 11:30 a.m., police were called after two men attended the Peter Lougheed Centre suffering from gunshot wounds. It is believed the shooting happened in the northeast community of Rundle, when one of the victims was approached by two unknown men in an alley. The men threatened the victim with a shotgun and demanded the keys to the victim’s truck and trailer. When the victim refused, he was shot by the suspects. The second victim became involved in a struggle with the offenders before he was also shot.
The suspects fled the area and the victims transported themselves to hospital, where they were treated for their injuries.
Investigators have spoken with several witnesses and are continuing to piece together the events leading up to the shooting. It is believed that this incident was targeted.
The suspects fled the scene in two vehicles, a red Dodge Journey and a newer model light-grey Jeep Cherokee, with an air freshener on the rear-view mirror. We are releasing CCTV images of the suspect vehicles in hopes that someone may have information that could assist investigators.
“We have combed through hours of CCTV footage from the area of the shooting and are looking for the public’s help to identify these vehicles,” says Staff Sergeant John Szczupack of the Calgary Police Service District 4 General Investigations Unit. “This was a brazen shooting that created significant risk for residents in the area. Assistance from the public is critical in helping us solve these investigations and keep our communities safe."
Anyone who may have knowledge of the shooting or recognizes these vehicles or remembers seeing these vehicles in the Rundle area on the day of the shooting and has not already spoken with investigators is asked to contact police by calling 403-266-1234.
