Victim’s family, CPS seek info in Martindale shooting death

Family members hope the public will step forward with information in the shooting death of a man last weekend in Calgary.

One person was killed and two were taken to hospital in life-threatening condition after a shooting April 29 in the northeast Calgary community of Martindale.

Police have since identified James Allan Feeney, 33, of Calgary, as the victim. The two other victims remain in the hospital in stable condition.

The family said, via statement, they were deeply saddened by the loss.

“We are devastated by this senseless act of violence,” read the statement.

Feeney’s sister Elizabeth and parents John and Denise Mclaughlin met with media on Tuesday, and are looking to the public for clues to help.

“If anyone has saw or heard anything that could relate to this incident, we urge you to come forward and share what you know, your assistance could be crucial in bringing justice for James Feeney,” said Elizabeth.

Staff Sergeant Sean Gregson with the CPS homicide unit said they spoke to two people yesterday, but no arrests have been made.

“We did speak to two people yesterday but until we get hard evidence like any one person, we’re keeping all our options opening and investigating all the tips that are coming in right now,” Gregson said.

This is the second shooting to take place in the Martindale area. Gregson said they don’t have anything specific to suggest a connection.

“I don’t know that these two incidents aren’t connected. We see no connection at all between them, the fact that they happened in the same community it may be more of a coincidence,” he said.

Earlier this week, the Calgary police said they were looking for a vehicle they believe was connected to the shooting.

Staff Sgt. Gregson said if anyone sees a vehicle matching that description that appears out of place in their neighbourhood to contact police.

Calgary Police are asking anyone with information regarding this incident to call 403-266-1234, or submit tips anonymously to Crime Stoppers through these methods.
