Charges laid, additional suspects sought in Marlborough shooting
This display of violence happened in a busy public area, was extremely reckless, and will not be tolerated. Calgarians deserve to feel safe as they move about the city and we continue to work with our partners, including Calgary Transit, to address this type of ongoing violence.
Investigators have charged one man and seized a flare gun following a reckless assault and shooting that occurred in a busy public area last week. We are also looking for the public’s help to identify additional individuals believed to be involved in the altercation.
On Thursday, Nov. 17, 2022, at approximately 2:15 p.m., a group of four males became involved in a physical altercation in the upper level of the Marlborough CTrain Station, located at 899 36 St. N.E. The violence continued to escalate, with suspects brandishing a pipe and a knife, while multiple citizens were attempting to flee the area. Several minutes later, one of the individuals returned to the upper level with a flare gun and fired it twice, causing one of the suspect’s jackets to briefly catch on fire.
The man who fired the flare gun fled the area on a departing CTrain and was arrested without incident by police at the Franklin CTrain Station and is now facing charges. The other three suspects fled Marlborough Station prior to police arrival. Investigators are looking for the public’s help to identify these men.
The first suspect, who was previously sought by police, has been arrested and can now be identified. Layne James DEEDZA, 22, has been charged with one count of assault with a weapon and two counts of possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose. He appeared in court today, Monday, Nov. 28, 2022.
The second suspect is described as 20 to 30 years old, 6’ tall, with a slim build and brown or black hair. He was wearing a green camo jacket with fur around the hood, a white hoodie, green reflective vest, dark pants and black shoes.
The third suspect is described as 20 to 30 years old, 5’8” tall, with a slim build, black hair and brown eyes. He was wearing a maroon jacket, a hoodie with a red Vans logo on the front, baseball hat, sunglasses, blue jeans and a wallet chain.
