Calgary Police Service arrested a man in connection with a New Year’s Eve shooting in Stettler.

At 4:47 p.m., Stettler RCMP responded to a 911 call regarding a man being shot in the northwest part of town.

Witnesses said there was a collision between two vehicles prior to the shooting.

Shots were fired and the shooter left in a pickup.

Both men involved in the incident were known to police and RCMP determined it was not a random shooting.

The 37-year-old victim was taken by STARS air ambulance with several gunshot wounds.

None of the wounds were life-threatening.

On New Year’s Eve, RCMP released a statement that they were looking for Darren James Bauer, 33, of no fixed address, in connection with the shooting.

On New Year’s Day at about 4:15 p.m., Bauer was allegedly observed driving in a stolen truck in Calgary and was arrested without incident.

Bauer, who was considered armed and dangerous, was wanted on 12 Canada-wide warrants for firearm and property offences and faces a previous charge of attempted murder.

Bauer was being transported to Airdrie RCMP detachment, where the investigation will continue with RCMP resources.
