Two people were found dead in a car in northeast Calgary Tuesday and police believe the men were shot.

According to police, they were called to the 1000 block of Marcombe Drive NE around 9:20 a.m. Tuesday. They received reports of a suspicious vehicle that had been left running on the street.

When officers arrived, the two people were found dead. Police say the men were shot between 9 and 9:30 p.m. Monday. Police believe the vehicle may have been parked in the area since Monday night.

Officers are canvassing the area for closed-circuit video footage of any activity. They’re also asking anyone in the area, including taxis or other vehicles with dashcam footage, to come forward.

“This was a violent and targeted incident that resulted in the death of two individuals,” said Staff Sergeant Martin Schiavetta of the Calgary Police Service Homicide Unit.

“While we are in the early stages of this investigation, this shooting has the hallmarks of organized crime.
