Police investigate shooting in Sunalta

We are investigating a shooting that occurred yesterday in the southwest community of Sunalta.

At approximately 10 p.m., on Monday, Feb. 19, 2024, we responded to reports of a shooting in the 1900 block of 10 Avenue S.W. Upon arrival, police located a bullet hole in the window of a business.

Although the investigation remains in the early stages, we can confirm that this was a targeted incident. Investigators have reviewed CCTV and have interviewed witnesses; however, we continue to ask individuals who have yet to speak with police to come forward.

“The level of violence and blatant disregard for public safety displayed during this incident will not be tolerated,” says Staff Sgt. Kurt Jacobs of the District 1 General Investigations Unit. “While this incident was targeted, the safety of innocent bystanders was put at risk on Monday, and we know many Calgarians are also alarmed. We’ve dedicated significant resources from across our Service to investigate this shooting and to hold the offenders accountable.”

 Addressing gun violence continues to be a priority for our Service. Through investigation, prevention, and enforcement activities we have coordinated our resources to reduce victimization and enhance community safety.
