Information sought in northeast shooting

We are asking for the public’s help to gather information about a shooting that occurred in the northeast community of Castleridge.

On Saturday, April 22, 2023, we responded to reports of gunshots in the 0 to 100 block of Castleglen Crescent N.E. At approximately 11 a.m., an altercation occurred between the occupants of two vehicles parked on the street. The confrontation escalated and resulted in an occupant of one of the vehicles being shot. The victim was treated at hospital for minor injuries.

The occupants in the vehicle responsible for the shooting fled the scene prior to police arrival. We are asking for members of the community to come forward with any information, dashcam or surveillance footage.

While a significant portion of shootings are targeted in our city, gun violence doesn’t just impact those involved in crime. It puts our entire community at risk, including an offender’s friends and family.

Addressing gun violence continues to be a priority for our Service. Through investigation, prevention and enforcement activities we have coordinated our resources to reduce victimization and enhance community safety.

Our efforts to address gun violence rely on strong community support. If you have information that could help an investigation, such as witnessing suspicious behaviour or vehicles, please contact police. Even something small can have a great impact on an investigation.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police by calling 403-266-1234. Tips can also be submitted anonymously to Crime Stoppers through any of the following methods:
