Investigation into weekend shootings continues
Our Organized Crime and Offender Management (OCOM) Section is investigating two brazen shootings that occurred in southwest and southeast Calgary on Saturday afternoon. The shootings are believed to be connected and targeted the same individual.
At approximately 2:45 p.m., on Saturday, Sept. 30, 2023, a driver called police to report a shooting involving two vehicles that occurred on westbound Glenmore Trail, near 37 Street S.W. Both vehicles fled the scene prior to police arrival and no injuries were reported.
Approximately 30 minutes later, police were called to a residence located in the 100 block of Seton Passage S.E., for reports that a man had been shot while parking his vehicle. Upon arrival, officers located one man suffering from gunshot wounds. He was transported to hospital in serious condition. It is believed that the suspect fired multiple rounds during the shooting in Seton, with stray bullets striking four surrounding residences, before fleeing the scene in a stolen vehicle.
Investigators quickly determined that these shootings were connected and are in the process of reviewing evidence from both scenes. At this time, no suspect description has been confirmed and the victim remains unco-operative with police.
"The level of violence and blatant disregard for public safety that these offenders demonstrated is extremely concerning and will not be tolerated. While both of these incidents were targeted, the safety of innocent bystanders was put at risk on Saturday, and we know many Calgarians are also alarmed. We’ve dedicated resources from across our Service to investigate these shootings and asking anyone with information or dashcam from the area to come forward.”
Investigators are specifically looking for dashcam footage from drivers who were travelling on southbound and/or eastbound Tsuut’ina Trail/Stoney Trail, between Glenmore Trail S.W. and 52 Street S.E., on Saturday, Sept. 30, 2023, between 2:30 and 3:30 p.m.
