The Alberta Serious Incident Response Team (ASIRT) is investigating following an officer-involved shooting that occurred in a convenience store located in the 4600 block of 37 Street S.W.

At approximately 8:10 p.m., on Friday, Sept. 29, 2017, police were called to the store for reports that a man inside was acting erratically and had produced a knife. Staff and other people inside the store believed they were in danger and called 9-1-1.
