Calgary police are asking for the public’s help in identifying suspects from a February shooting that put two men in hospital.
The incident happened around 11:30 a.m. on Feb. 9 in the community of Rundle.
One of the two victims was approached in an alley by two men. One of the men brandished a shotgun and demanded the keys to the man’s truck and trailer. When he refused, he was shot.
A second victim engaged with the suspects and was also shot. The suspects fled and both victims transported themselves to the Peter Lougheed Centre.
After reviewing CCTV footage, police believe the suspects fled in two separate vehicles: a red Dodge Journey and a light grey Jeep Cherokee, which had an air freshener in the rear-view mirror.
“We have combed through hours of CCTV footage from the area of the shooting and are looking for the public’s help to identify these vehicles,” said Staff Sergeant John Szczupack of the Calgary Police Service District 4 general investigations unit. “This was a brazen shooting that created significant risk for residents in the area. Assistance from the public is critical in helping us solve these investigations and keep our communities safe.”
Police are asking anyone who may have seen the vehicles in the Rundle area on the day of the shooting, or who recognizes the vehicles to call Calgary police at 403-266-1234, or to send the information anonymously to Calgary Crime Stoppers.
