Calgary Police Service seeking suspects in northeast shooting

The Calgary Police Service is trying to identify suspects involved in a confrontation and shooting that lasted around an hour on Monday evening.

Police said they responded to a shooting at the 100 block of Corner Meadows Way N.E. at around 5:15 p.m. Multiple individuals were involved in a confrontation that began outside a residence at the 400 block of Taralake Way N.E. before the shooting occurred, according to a Wednesday afternoon news release.

The individuals were travelling in four separate vehicles, according to police.

The suspects smashed the windshield of an uninvolved vehicle in the Cornerstone Boulevard and Country Hills Boulevard N.E. during the incident before they realized it belonged to an innocent citizen, police said.

The suspects also collided with a second uninvolved vehicle in the intersection of 68 Street and Airport Trail N.E. and fled the scene.

The CPS said the suspects travelled towards the Cornerstone neighbourhood, where the shooting occurred.
