Today, Friday, Oct. 27, 2023, at approximately 1:15 p.m., we responded to reports of a shooting in the 200 block of Pinemill Way N.E. Upon arrival, police located one victim who had been shot and administered first aid until EMS arrived at the scene. The victim was transported to hospital in stable condition.
It is believed the shooting was a targeted incident involving another individual, and that the victim was an innocent bystander.
The suspect fled the scene in a white SUV. The vehicle matching the description given by witnesses was found abandoned a short time later in the Pineridge area.
Due to the proximity of two schools in the area, the Calgary Board of Education initiated lockdowns as the situation unfolded. The lockdowns have now been lifted. Police do not believe that the school or any students were in danger.
