2 men shot near 17th Ave. S.W. nightclub
Calgary police blocked off 17th Avenue S.W. between 9th and 10th Street
Two people were taken to hospital after a shooting near a 17th Avenue S.W. nightclub Wednesday night.
EMS confirmed that two men in their 30s had been shot, and were being transported to hospital in stable, non-life-threatening condition.
Police had blocked off 17th Avenue S.W. between 9th and 10th Street — the area surrounding Lounge Eighteen nightclub — after what they described as a "serious incident" at around 9:40 p.m.
Multiple cruisers and an ambulance were at the location, which was cordoned off with yellow police tape, and police were asking the public to avoid the area.
Witness Tony Gabriel said he arrived at Lounge Eighteen around 9:15 p.m., and he hadn't been there long when he saw a number of people rush out of the club.
"We were just hanging out. We didn't know what was going on. All of a sudden cops came … and then more and more," Gabriel said. "They came in and started asking everyone for statements."
No arrests had been made as of 11 p.m.
Police are asking anyone with information about the incident to please contact the non-emergency line at 403-266-1234.
