Three people arrested in a shooting near Stettler have been released from custody and RCMP are looking for a new suspect who is believed to have stolen a modified heavy-duty truck.

Stettler RCMP and the RCMP Serious Crimes Branch South are looking for a truck that was stolen as part of the April 7 incident east of Red Deer.

The truck is described as a black four-door Ford F250 Super Duty diesel pickup truck. When it was stolen, it had Alberta licence plate BPM 6591 on it. It has unique features including “Lamborghini” style doors, also known as scissor doors, which rotate vertically rather than outwardly when they are opened.

There is a Harley-Davidson emblem at the vehicle’s trim level, however it is not a Harley-Davidson edition truck. The truck also has a slip tank in the cargo area and after-market rims.

Police caution people to not approach the vehicle or its occupants as they may be armed and dangerous.

Anyone with information about the shooting or the whereabouts of this truck is asked to contact Stettler RCMP at 403-742-3383, call 911 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

An initial police news release said two men and a woman from Stettler had been arrested in relation to the incident.

However, RCMP investigation has progressed and those three were released from custody without being charged at this time.

Now police are asking for the public’s assistance to locate a truck that was stolen during the altercation that led to the shooting.
