Second shooting: Crescent Heights

The second shooting happened around 8:30 p.m. Friday in Crescent Heights, police said.

According to police, the victim and a friend exited Jerusalem Shawarma at 1608 2 Street SW and went to a parked vehicle in the alley behind the restaurant.

While they were sitting in the black SUV, unknown people appeared and fired multiple shots into the vehicle. A man in his 20s suffered multiple gunshot wounds.

The driver fled the scene towards a hospital while calling 9-1-1 for help, police said.

The SUV stopped at 16 Avenue NE and Deerfoot Trail at around 8:54 p.m. where emergency crews met the vehicle. The victim was declared dead at the scene, police said.

Anyone with dashcam footage from eastbound 16 Avenue NE to Deerfoot Trail from 8:30 to 9:45 p.m., is asked to contact police.
