Shooting Update - Seeking Third Man

The Calgary Police Service continues to seek a third man in connection with a shooting at a downtown nightclub.

The man was initially detained by officers who arrived shortly after the shooting on Sunday, Jan. 10, 2016, but was able to leave the area as officers turned their attention to secure the scene and arrest the shooter and one of his accomplices.

The shooting at Ten X Night Club, 1140 10 Ave. S.W., occurred around 1:30 a.m. As two men waited in a nearby car, a third walked up to the front door of the club and fired off several shots inside.

The shooter was immediately tackled by bar staff, and shortly after joined by CPS Gang Suppression Team members who were nearby and heard the shots. The driver of the vehicle was arrested at the scene along with the alleged shooter.

One person inside the bar was struck by the gunfire. The 38-year-old man was transported to hospital in stable condition.

This shooting is not believed to be connected to several other acts of violence in the city over the past several months.

Police are asking for public assistance in identifying the third person involved in the shooting. He is described as black, approximately 5’10” tall, between 20 and 30 years old, and was wearing white pants and a beige-coloured sweater. Two photos captured from CCTV footage are being released and are available on The City of Calgary Newsroom.

Anyone with information about this man is asked to contact the non-emergency number 403-266-1234, or Crime Stoppers at any of the following methods:
