Edmonton downtown shooting kills one, injures 2nd
Shooting follows fight inside Hudsons Tap House
A man in his 30s was killed at 112th Street and 104th Avenue in front of Hudsons Downtown early Tuesday morning.
The shooting followed a fight inside the bar between two groups of men at around 2:20 a.m.
One group was kicked out, only to get involved with another group of men outside, a manager told CBC.
Police say that's when shots were fired. A second person was treated for a superficial bullet wound to his arm.
The restaurant was packed but calm when the fight broke out, according to one witness.
“It was a great night," Sean Lamb said. "There was no tension, there was no nothing. It just kind of came out of the blue.”
Weekends aren't the problem at Hudsons. Management says violence is an issue on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday nights.
Company president Chris Decock says police are trying to get patrols in place for every night of the week.
"They haven't provided them yet, but they're in the process," he said. "And my understanding … is that they are looking to allocate those resources."
Police have spoken with witnesses, but no suspect has been arrested.
