Calgary police are looking for a man who shot two other men in the city center on Monday afternoon.
The Calgary Police Service said in a press release that two of their employees were in a downtown parking lot at around 1:30 p.m. when they heard gunshots and saw a black Hyundai Sonata vehicle leave the area.
Police now believe three men were engaged in a physical battle outside a residential building on the 400 block of 8 Avenue SE just before the gunfire rang out.
It is said that two of the men got into the sonata and the third man shot them before driving away in a separate car.
The sonata was later found abandoned nearby. The officers still don’t know what happened to the shooter’s car.
Although no one was injured, Staff Sgt. Theresa Garagan said it could have been someone.
“This was a bold, deliberate act that could have led to tragedy,” she said. “Public safety is always our primary concern and we are committed to holding those responsible for this negligent and dangerous act accountable.”
The police describe the shooter as a black man with shoulder-length braids or dreadlocks. At the time, he wore an army green jacket, white t-shirt, and red sneakers.
The police are also asking anyone who witnessed the incident or has dashcam footage to call him on 403-266-1234 or speak to CrimeStoppers anonymously.
