Homicide Unit investigators are identifying the victim of a fatal shooting that occurred over the weekend.
Just before 10 p.m., on Saturday, March 27, 2021, we were called to the 5200 block of Memorial Drive S.E., for reports of shots fired. Upon arrival, a man in his 30s was found on the street in medical distress. Despite the efforts of first responders, he died at the scene.
Following the completion of an autopsy conducted by The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner, the victim has been identified as Jesse Shaye Troy GEORGE, 30, of Calgary.
At this time, it is believed that the shooting was targeted, and the offender was known to the victim. Police are actively investigating this homicide and asking for anyone with information to come forward.
