The Calgary Police Service Homicide Unit has been called in to investigate the death of a man who was dropped off at an urgent care clinic with critical injuries.

The victim, a man in his 20s, was rushed to hospital where he later succumbed to his injuries.
A short time later, police located what is believed to be the same vehicle on 17 Avenue S.W., and conducted a traffic stop. One man was taken into custody for questioning. It is not yet known what, if any, involvement he may have had in the incident. The man was released earlier this morning.
An autopsy has been scheduled for today, Tuesday, Jan. 24, 2017.
