Seeking public assistance in shooting incident

The Calgary Police Service is seeking public assistance in relation to a shooting incident that took place earlier this week.

On Monday, April 4, 2016, at approximately 11:55 p.m., an unknown number of offenders fired an undisclosed number of shots while in the area of 67 Avenue and 5 Street S.W. Police were called to the scene after shots also penetrated the window of a residence in the 700 block of 67 Avenue S.W.

No one was injured during the incident.

Police are looking to identify two men who may have witnessed the shooting in front of the residence. These men are not believed to be involved in the incident. One of the men was wearing a red or orange jacket or winter coat with fur along the hood and a hat. After the shooting the men travelled on foot southbound along 5 Street S.W. before entering an alley between 67 Avenue and 68 Avenue S.W.

Police are also looking for further descriptions on two darker-coloured vehicles seen leaving the area at a high rate of speed. One travelled eastbound on 67 Avenue S.W. onto southbound Macleod Trail. The second travelled westbound on 67 Avenue S.W. gaining access to eastbound Glenmore Trail from the Phil's Restaurant parking lot.

Earlier reports of a blood trail have been determined to be false as no blood was found on scene.
