Calgary police have identified a man killed in a shooting at a New Year’s house party that also injured six other people, but they say they still don’t know what prompted the gunfire.

Calgary police have identified a man killed in a shooting at a New Year’s house party that also injured six other people, but they say they still don’t know what prompted the gunfire.

Police say Abdullahi Ahmed, who was 26 and lived in Calgary, died in hospital on New Year’s Day after shots were fired early Thursday morning.

Police say they believe the home west of downtown Calgary was not randomly targeted, but they don’t know if a specific person at the party was an intended victim.

They say those hit included an innocent bystander who was driving past the residence and was struck by gunfire.

Police don’t have any suspects and have not established a motive for the crime.

Investigators say another fatal shooting early this morning in Calgary is probably not related to the gunfire at the party.

Officers responding to a report of gunshots arrived to find a man dead in an alley and are still investigating.
