Lengthy downtown Calgary shooting investigation ends in arrest




Calgary police have made an arrest in connection to a downtown shooting following a three-month-long investigation.

At around 3 a.m. on Feb. 11, a verbal dispute between two groups of people in a parking lot in the 600 block of 10 Avenue S.W. ended when one person fired a shot from a handgun, striking another person, according to police, and the suspects fled the scene.

Investigators believe this was not a random attack, but the result of a escalating dispute between two groups.

Police said the victim and witnesses “were not cooperative.”

Following months of investigation, a search warrant was executed on May 24 in the 4800 block of Rundlehorne Drive N.E.

Police found and seized 5.7 grams of crack cocaine and 25.1 grams of MDMA from the residence.
