Nightclub Shooting – Third update

The Calgary Police Service is seeking public assistance to identify two men who may have information about a recent shooting at a downtown nightclub.

The men were captured on nearby CCTV and investigators believe they are likely to have information that would lead to the arrest of a third man wanted in connection with this case. Photos of the men are available on The City of Calgary Newsroom.

The shooting at Ten X Night Club, 1140 10 Ave. S.W., occurred around 1:30 a.m., on Sunday, Jan. 10, 2016. As two men waited in a nearby car, a third walked up to the front door of the club and fired off several shots inside.

The shooter was immediately tackled by bar staff, and shortly after joined by CPS Gang Suppression Team members who were nearby and heard the shots. The driver of the vehicle was arrested at the scene along with the alleged shooter.

One person inside the bar was struck by the gunfire. The 38-year-old man was transported to hospital in stable condition.

A third man being sought in connection with the shooting was initially detained by officers, but was able to leave the area as officers turned their attention to secure the scene and arrest the shooter and one of his accomplices.

The third person involved is described as black, approximately 5’10” tall, between 20 and 30 years old, and was wearing white pants and a beige-coloured sweater.

Anyone with information about this man, or the men in the newly released CCTV photos, is asked to contact the non-emergency number 403-266-1234, or Crime Stoppers at any of the following methods:
