Calgary police have laid seven firearm offences against a man accused of using a flare gun in a shooting on Nov. 17 at the Marlborough CTrain Station.
In a statement, police said Evan Robert Mossing, 37, allegedly shot another suspect in afternoon violence at the station. The dispute escalated with the use of a pipe and a knife as weapons.
In surveillance video provided by the Calgary Police Service, members of the public were seen moving through the station during a fight between a number of male suspects, and then fleeing after the flare gun was used to light another man’s jacket on fire.
“This display of violence happened in a busy public area, was extremely reckless, and will not be tolerated,” said Acting Staff Sergeant Shelby Stewart.
“Calgarians deserve to feel safe as they move about the city and we continue to work with our partners, including Calgary Transit, to address this type of ongoing violence.”
Mossing was arrested without incident by Calgary Police at the Franklin CTrain Station, after fleeing Marlborough Station after the attack.
“Investigators would like to thank members of Calgary Transit who were critical in helping to locate one of the suspects,” said the Calgary Police Service.
He was charged with seven offences including discharging a firearm with intent while being reckless, careless use of a firearm, and possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose. Mossing was released from custody pending his next court date on December 13.
