Calgary police investigate suspicious death in Temple

Calgary police are investigating the death of a woman in the community of Temple on Thursday evening.

Officers responded to reports of gunshots in the 300 block of Templeview N.E. at around 7:15 p.m. and found a woman unconscious and in medical distress with what appeared to be a gunshot wound.

Police say the woman was transported to the Foothills Medical Centre in life-threatening condition but was later pronounced dead in hospital.

Nearby residents say this latest incident has them on edge. 

“I have kids. It’s scary. Very scary. I just fear for my kids’ safety. It’s a shame,” said Abdul Salam Abdul Ghani.

 “This has never happened to me with my next-door neighbour. They have had a lot of problems, like domestic disturbances. The cops have been called here many times, but not like this.”

An autopsy is scheduled for Friday.

If this case is determined to be a homicide, it would be Calgary’s 10th of 2022.

The Calgary Police Service reported just 19 total homicides last year.

Anyone with information on the death is asked to contact the police non-emergency number at 403-266-1234 or Crime Stoppers.
