Gunshots were fired in Blackfalds on Thursday after a reported scuffle between two groups of people on a residential street.
Police were called out to Westbrook Road after reports of gunfire took place at about 5:45 p.m.
Brian, who didn’t want his last name used, said he watched from his living room window as two trucks, a white and a black one, stopped in the middle of the road.
Several men got out of the vehicles and began shouting at two men standing directly outside a house, Brian said.
“They weren’t standing there very long before they got into a scuffle.”
Meanwhile, a driver and a man in the back seat of the white truck had stayed behind.
After the ruckus ended, the men started walking back to their trucks.
That’s when Brian noticed the passenger of the white truck had climbed out with what appeared to be a shotgun.
“He came around the front of the Chevy and started firing the rounds,” Brian said.
The eyewitness said that the shots had penetrated two holes in one of the trucks parked outside the house.
Shortly after, the occupants of the white and black trucks sped off. Brian then watched as the occupants from the house took off, one in one vehicle and two in another.
Within about five minutes, RCMP were on scene.
Police later did a high-risk takedown of what they thought was one of the suspect trucks involved, the black one.
It happened about 6 p.m. on Gaetz Avenue north of 67th Street.
With guns drawn, police arrested a couple inside the truck which was travelling south on Gaetz Avenue.
The man and woman were handcuffed but a few minutes later, they were released.
Information on whether any arrests had been made were unavailable at press time.
