Seeking to locate vehicle involved in road rage altercation involving weapon
We are seeking the public’s help to locate a vehicle that was part of a road rage incident that escalated to a firearm being discharged.
On Thursday, Jan. 6, 2022, at approximately 4:30 p.m., a man was driving northbound on Castleridge Boulevard N.E. when he cut in front of a Dodge Ram pick-up truck. The driver of the Ram began to tailgate the victim’s vehicle before pulling alongside the driver’s side of the vehicle and firing a shot, striking the victim in the arm. The Ram then fled the scene.
No licence plate number was obtained as it was covered by snow.
The victim drove to a safe location and contacted police. He has since recovered from his physical injuries.
“This is a disturbing incident where a person was shot over a minor traffic dispute. This event is particularly troubling because it occurred in broad daylight in close proximity to a playground,” said Detective Jonah Edwards with the Calgary Police Service. “Though we have been able to move this investigation forward since January, we now need the public’s help to locate the truck in order to address this troubling behaviour.”
The suspect’s truck is described as a dark grey, 2014 or 2015 model year Dodge Ram 1500 with a two- to three-inch lift kit and aftermarket taillights. The truck also has yellow material in the driver’s side wheel well and dark tint on the rear windows.
CCTV photos of the vehicle are available on The City of Calgary Newsroom.
Anyone with information about the location of the vehicle is asked to contact police by calling 403-266-1234. Tips can also be submitted anonymously to Crime Stoppers through any of the following methods:
