CALGARY – Calgary police are investigating after one man was killed and another slightly injured Saturday morning.
Officials say they were called into the township at around 2:50 a.m. to receive reports of a two-vehicle shooting.
In the course of the investigation, police discovered that one of the vehicles at 36 Street and 26 Avenue NE had crashed into an LRT barricade
Calgary EMS found two men in the vehicle and took them to the hospital. One of the men died from his injuries while the other is in stable condition.
Investigators are currently working on several scenes in southeast Calgary. In one of those scenes, near the intersection of 17 Avenue and 35 Street SE in the Southview community, police blocked a gray SUV that CTV News learned may be linked to the crime.
Police now say the shooting stems from an altercation outside the Portico Hookah Lounge. According to the latest police release, two groups of men are believed to have been involved in a fight and staff members have asked them to leave the team.
“When they were outside, the argument escalated and a shooting broke out. The victim initially left the scene with witnesses, but was rushed to hospital by EMS after his vehicle was involved in the collision at 36 Street and 26 Avenue NE. This victim later succumbed to her injuries in the hospital, “police said in a release.
THIRD VICTIM IN THE HOSPITAL
Police also say a third person who was an innocent bystander near the shooting outside of the store was hit by a stray bullet. EMS took this man to the hospital and officials say he is in stable condition.
No details of the arrests are currently available, but police have provided details on a suspect who was wanted in the incident.
He is described as:
Short black hair
Carrying a Gucci shoulder bag
The police are also asking the public and business owners for information, photos or videos that could help them determine what happened.
The victim’s identity has not been disclosed and an autopsy is scheduled for next week.
