RCMP are trying to track down dash cam footage related to shooting incidents that left a man dead and a police officer and a woman seriously injured near Leduc on Wednesday.
Police said the officer was still in hospital on Thursday with non-life-threatening injuries and is doing well.
The 48-year-old woman shot in Blackfalds is in stable condition in hospital.
Police would not provide any more details on the circumstances around the Blackfalds shooting.
As in all shootings involving police, the Aberta Serious Incident Response Team has taken over that part of the investigation. Further information must come from them, said police.
Police are looking for video captured between 8:15 and 9:45 a.m. of a black, four-door BMW sedan in Blackfalds, on Highway 2A between Blackfalds and Lacombe, and on Highway 2 between Lacombe and Leduc.
Police encourage anyone who has footage to load in on a USB stick and take it to the Blackfalds detachment at 4405 South St. For more information, call the detachment at 403-885-3300.
RCMP say officers responded at about 8 a.m. to a firearms complaint in Blackfalds.
They say shots were fired from the home toward RCMP vehicles, and a woman who was in the area was shot and taken to hospital.
Police issued a warning for residents in the Lansdowne and Briarwood areas to lock their doors and stay in their basements.
A Blackfalds resident described on Facebook what he heard. What is presumed to be a gunshot, “sounded like someone shutting a truck door,” he wrote.
His family were told by police to leave their home in Westwood and go to the end of the alley, and “we heard what sounded like popping noises. Kinda like from a handgun.”
He also saw heavily armed police in the area.
Mounties say a man fled in a car from Blackfalds and headed north on Highway 2.
Police used a tire-deflation device, and there was a brief pursuit, before the car crossed the median and drove the wrong way into traffic.
When it came to a stop, police say there was a confrontation that led to the death of the 27-year-old driver and a serious injury to an officer.
