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.

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