The suspect in an armed robbery outside the Jasper Place Hotel on Saturday afternoon has been arrested in Calgary.

Police say that Scott Anthony Letiec, 25, turned himself into Calgary police Sunday night after learning from a TV news item that there was a warrant out for his arrest. 

Letiec was arrested for robbery with a firearm and over a dozen firearms-related offences. He will make his first appearance in court on Tuesday.

Police say the robbery suspect pulled out a gun, fired a shot and then aimed it at a man who was having a cigarette outside the hotel, located at Stony Plain Road and 153rd Street.
