Seeking Public Assistance - Shooting Investigation

The Calgary Police Service is investigating a shooting that left a man injured, and are looking for public assistance to identify and locate the driver of a vehicle seen in the area at the time of the shooting.

At approximately 2:20 a.m., Saturday, March 10, 2018, police were called to a home in the 3600 block of 29A Avenue S.E., for a report that a man had been shot inside his home. The victim, a man in his 30s, was taken to hospital in non-life-threatening condition, where he remains in stable condition.

The victim had been sleeping in his bedroom at the time and it is believed the gunshots came from outside the residence, through the walls of the home, striking the victim while he lay in his bed. Investigators have not yet been able to confirm the motive or whether the victim was the intended target, however, at this time it is believed the victim may be an innocent bystander.

A review of CCTV footage revealed a car turned into the alleyway prior to the shooting. Investigators are seeking public assistance to locate the vehicle and the driver to determine what, if any, involvement they may have had, or what they may have witnessed while in the area at the time of the shooting. The vehicle is a light-coloured, four-door car. A CCTV photo of the car can be found on The City of Calgary Newsroom.

Anyone with information about this shooting, or the car in question, is asked to contact the Calgary Police Service non-emergency number at 403-266-1234 or Crime Stoppers anonymously using any of these methods:
