Investigators from the Calgary Police Service are trying to put together the events leading up to a shooting that occurred in the community of Cornerstone on Jan. 30.
Police were called to the 100 block of Corner Meadows Way NE at approximately 5:15 p.m. following reports of a shooting involving multiple people, traveling in multiple vehicles.
The service said in a statement that they are looking for witnesses and video from 4 to 5:15 p.m., and believe that multiple witnesses observed incidents leading up to the shooting.
“Our efforts to address gun violence rely on strong community support. If you have information that could help an investigation, such as witnessing suspicious behaviour or vehicles, please contact police,” said CPS.
“Even something small can have a great impact on an investigation.”
Police indicated that they believe the shooting followed an incident earlier in the day in the community of Taradale, on the 400 block of Taralake Way NE.
The suspects, driving a blue Toyota Yaris, a white Nissan Rogue, a white Lexus GS sedan, and a grey Volkswagen, damaged the vehicles of several innocent people caught in the incident.
The suspects smashed the window of a stopped vehicle on Cornerstone Boulevard and Country Hills Boulevard NE, before realizing that the vehicle belonged to an innocent person.
The suspects later ran into a second uninvolved vehicle at the intersection of 68 Street NE and Airport Trail NE, before fleeing to Cornerstone where the shooting occurred.
Police believe the incident was targeted, and that the individuals involved in the shooting were known to each other. No injuries were reported, police said.
“Addressing gun violence continues to be a priority for our Service. Through investigation, prevention, and enforcement activities we have coordinated our resources to reduce victimization and enhance community safety.”
Anyone with information is asked to call police at 403-266-1234, or submit tips anonymously to Crime Stoppers.
