Calgary, AB,

Charges in McKenzie Lake Incident

The Calgary Police Service has charged two people in relation to an incident that occurred yesterday, Wednesday, Aug. 13, 2014, at approximately 9:30 p.m.

After passing a group of men at a McKenzie Lake gas station, a man and a woman left the area in their vehicle. When the male driver noticed they were being followed by a vehicle containing three men, he pulled over on Mount McKenzie Drive S.E. to call 911.

The second vehicle caught up, and a confrontation ensued.

It is alleged that one of the occupants of the second vehicle then fired a pellet gun at the first vehicle, shattering the window, before fleeing the area.

The driver sustained minor injuries and was transported to hospital as a precaution.

CPS officers located the suspect vehicle a short time later and the three occupants were taken into custody without incident. An air pistol and a canister of bear spray were found in the vehicle.

Saadullah BHATTI, 18, of Calgary has been charged with one count of mischief to property, two counts of assault with a weapon and two breaches of conditions.

Armanjot DHALIWAL, 18, of Calgary, has been charged with one count each of assault and possession of a weapon dangerous to the public.

This event is not believed to be random, as one of the victims and at least one of the suspects are known to one another.

The investigation continues and further charges may be laid.

Anyone who may have witnessed this incident is asked to call police at 403-266-1234 or Crime Stoppers anonymously using any of the following methods:
