One man is dead following a shooting in northwest Calgary on Saturday morning. 

Police said the incident took place around 5:30 a.m. on the 4600 block of Bowness Road N.W.. Crews were called for reports of a man in medical distress. 

"When officers arrived they found a man in his 40s who had sustained critical injuries as the result of a shooting," said acting Staff Sgt. Kevin Dyrgas. "That male has since died."

No one is in custody at this time but the homicide unit is investigating. A woman who was with the man when officers arrived was taken for questioning but Dyrgas couldn't comment on their relationship.

"This is not a random incident," said Dyrgas. "The public has no reason to be concerned."

Bowness Road between 45 Street and 46 Street N.W. was closed for several hours but has since been reopened. 

An autopsy is scheduled for this week.

Anyone with information is asked to call police at 403-266-1234 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
