Police investigating after 1 man killed in Forest Lawn shooting

Calgary police are investigating after an early morning shooting in the southeast community of Forest Lawn killed one man and injured another.

Police were called at approximately 2:50 a.m. Saturday after receiving reports that two vehicles were involved in a shooting in Forest Lawn.

“The [two vehicles] were definitely shooting at each other,” said Sgt. Jim Dalidowicz with Calgary police.

After the shooting, two males in one of the vehicles attempted to drive to the hospital and got into a collision, Dalidowicz said.

Upon arrival, officers discovered the males had driven the vehicle into a barricade near a Calgary Transit station located at 36 Street and 26 Avenue N.E.

EMS transported the two males inside to hospital. One died from injuries related to the shooting, Dalidowicz said, while the other is in stable condition.

Dalidowicz said anyone with information about the shooting should contact police, and residents and businesses in the Forest Lawn area should check their cars and buildings for bullet holes and casings or related damage.

Police said an autopsy will be scheduled early this week.

Anyone with information on the shooting is asked to contact the Calgary police homicide tip line at 403-428-8877 or anonymously through Crime Stoppers.
