Officer-involved shooting in Dover

The Alberta Serious Incident Response Team (ASIRT) has been called in following an officer-involved shooting in Dover earlier this evening.

Just before 7 p.m., Thursday, Nov. 3, 2016, patrol members in District 4 observed a stolen vehicle travelling in the area of 30 Avenue and 36 Street N.E. HAWCS was called in to assist. As patrol members were awaiting the arrival of HAWCS, the stolen vehicle pulled into a back alley in the 3800 block of 30 Avenue S.E. A marked police vehicle pulled into the alley and the stolen 2000 Civic pulled over.

The patrol members exited their vehicle and approached the Civic at which time a series of events occurred that resulted in one police officer being dragged by the vehicle.

A second officer, a three-year-member of the Calgary Police Service, discharged their Service-issued firearm, striking the driver of the stolen vehicle.

The officer who was dragged by the vehicle, also a three-year member of the CPS, was taken to hospital with what is believed to be minor injuries at this time.

The driver of the stolen vehicle, a 21-year-old man, was transported to hospital in serious, non-life threatening condition.
