Shooting and collision investigation continues
We continue to investigate Tuesday evening’s shooting and collision that resulted in the death of an innocent woman.
At approximately 11:10 p.m., on Tuesday, May 10, 2022, we received multiple reports of two vehicles driving erratically along 36 Street S.E. and exchanging gunfire before colliding with two uninvolved vehicles in the intersection of 36 Street and 17 Avenue S.E. The incident resulted in the death of the driver of one of the uninvolved vehicles and several homes being struck by gunfire.
Following an autopsy by the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner, we can now confirm the identity of the innocent victim as 40-year-old Angela Monica MCKENZIE.
From the initial processing of the scene it does not appear the silver van being driven by MCKENZIE was struck by any firearm rounds. Both the offending truck and van involved in this incident have been secured by police for further detailed forensic processing.
“Several areas of the Service are working together to investigate and determine exactly what led up to the shooting and subsequent death of Angela McKenzie,” said Staff Sergeant Sean Gregson with the Calgary Police Service Major Crimes Section. “Our hearts go out to Angela’s family and friends at this difficult time and our focus remains on the identification of the driver of the truck in order to hold him responsible for this senseless death.”
Police continue to investigate the circumstances leading up to the shooting and collision. Investigators are interviewing witnesses and are combing through CCTV, cell phone and dashcam footage. We are appealing once again to the public for any additional information that may aid the investigation.
“Although original witness information indicated two suspects fled the offending vehicle, and through a review of CCTV to this point, it is undetermined if two people fled the vehicle. We have verified that the truck was stolen and have a description of the main suspect who fled the scene after the collision,” continued Staff Sergeant Gregson. “This suspect remains at large, and we encourage anyone with information about their identity or whereabouts to contact police.”
The suspect is described as a 25- to 30-year old male with a medium build. He was wearing a baseball cap and was carrying a laptop-style bag.
CCTV photos and a video of the suspect are available on The City of Calgary Newsroom.
“We know that members of the community have questions about how something like this could happen in our city,” added Staff Sergeant Gregson. “Although it’s still too early to speak about motive or connections between the offenders, we continue to investigate and again want to call on community members to help us with our investigation. Even small pieces of information can have a significant impact.”
