Homicide Investigation Update

The Calgary Police Service continues to investigate a homicide that occurred on the weekend.

On Saturday, Oct. 4, 2014, at approximately 9:50 a.m., emergency personnel responded to reports of a man shot in the 300 block of Manora Cr. N.E.

Upon arrival, first responders located the man and transported him to a local hospital, where he was pronounced deceased.

It is believed the man had left his residence and was in the back alley when he was shot.

While suspects have not been identified, it is believed this was a targeted attack.

The autopsy will not be completed until tomorrow, Tuesday, Oct. 7, 2014. However, the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner has identified the victim as Jason Quinn ANTONIO, 39, of Calgary.

This is Calgary’s 27th homicide of 2014.

Several minutes after the homicide occurred, it was reported that shots were fired at nearby houses on Maidstone Crescent N.E.

While it was initially believed a bullet entered one home, and another was lodged in a second residence, investigators have confirmed that only the first home was affected, and the second home had a pre-existing hole, not caused by a bullet.

Investigators are working to determine whether the damage to the first home is related to the homicide. Further ballistic testing must be completed before this is confirmed.

Anyone with information on this homicide is asked to call police at 403-266-1234, the Homicide Unit tip line at 403-428-8877 or Crime Stoppers anonymously using any of the following methods:
