Looking for witnesses in northeast Calgary shooting
We are looking for the public’s help to identify suspects who were involved in a confrontation and shooting that lasted approximately an hour on Monday evening and travelled across several communities in northeast Calgary.
On Monday, Jan. 30, 2023, at approximately 5:15 p.m., we were called for reports of a shooting that occurred in the 100 block of Corner Meadows Way N.E. It is believed that multiple individuals, travelling in four vehicles, were involved in the confrontation before the shooting occurred in Cornerstone. The confrontation is believed to have begun outside a residence located in the 400 block of Taralake Way N.E.
During the incident, suspects smashed the windshield of an uninvolved vehicle stopped in the area of Cornerstone Boulevard and Country Hills Boulevard N.E., before realizing it belonged to an innocent citizen. Minutes later, one of the offenders also collided with a second uninvolved vehicle in the intersection of 68 Street and Airport Trail N.E., and fled the scene. The offenders continued travelling towards Cornerstone, where the shooting occurred. No injuries were reported.
Investigators are working to identify suspects and believe that multiple citizens may have witnessed this incident and have yet to come forward. This incident was believed to be targeted and individuals involved were known to each other.
The suspect vehicles are described as:
- A blue Toyota Yaris
