Calgary police investigate fatal shooting at restaurant
CALGARY — Calgary police are investigating a fatal shooting at a restaurant on Canada Day.
Police say one man died and two others were taken to hospital after the shootings in northeast Calgary around 2 a.m.
A fourth victim showed up at the same hospital suffering from a minor gunshot wound. It is suspected her injuries were sustained during the same shooting.
Duty Inspector Craig Skelton says investigators believe the shootings were targeted.
“It wasn’t a random event,” Skelton said on Sunday.
So far, Skelton says police do not have any suspects.
The conditions of the wounded men are unknown.
Skelton says the restaurant, Basil Ultimate Pho and Fine Vietnamese Cuisine, was open at the time and that he believes other patrons who were not victims were inside when the shots were fired.
He says it’s early in the investigation and doesn’t know if gangs were involved.
“I don’t want to speculate, but our homicide people are looking at it. And of course they have access to all the investigative units with the police service. So if they think that there’s a connection that way, then they’ll involve those units,” Skelton says.
