Fatal downtown shooting under investigation
Our Homicide Unit is investigating a fatal shooting that occurred in the downtown core early this morning.
We were called to the Junction Underground nightclub, located at 628 8 Ave. S.W., around 2:40 a.m., on Sunday, Oct. 10, 2021, for reports that someone had been shot outside the business.
When officers arrived, they found a man in his 30s who was in serious medical distress. He was transported to hospital in life-threatening condition while our officers secured the scene and searched the area for suspects. The man died a short time later at the hospital.
During the search, a second man in his 30s arrived at the Foothills Medical Centre with gunshot wounds. Officers were called to the hospital and believe the man may be connected to the downtown incident. He remains in hospital with serious, non-life-threatening injuries.
It is very early in the investigation and we are working to determine what happened and how the two men are connected. More information will be shared once it is known and the deceased victim cannot be named until after his autopsy early next week.
Anyone with information on this incident is asked to contact us by calling the non-emergency line at 403-266-1234. Tips can also be submitted anonymously to Crime Stoppers through any of the following methods:
