Cars, homes struck in apparent shooting spree
Police have charged 2 people in connection to incidents
Two men are facing weapon and property damage charges after a series of shootings in the northeast Calgary community of Abbeydale Sunday morning.
"This incident is believed to be a result of alcohol impairment and none of the victims were specifically targeted," said Calgary police in a release.
Three cars and three homes are believed to have been struck in the incidents, which took place in several different locations. Police say 10 shots were fired all together.
The first call came from the driver of a car who was followed and then shot at, police said. The bullet had lodged in the trunk of the victim’s car.
Soon after police received multiple calls from people in Abbeydale and nearby Marlborough reporting more gunfire.
“It should be noted that there were no reports of any injuries at all,” said Duty Insp. Darrell Hesse.
Near one of the shooting scenes, police found a gold Jeep Grand Cherokee matching the description provided by witnesses. It had been involved in a minor accident.
Officers took the driver and passenger into custody. A 22-year-old man from Chestermere faces eight weapon and property-damage charges. Another 22-year-old man from Calgary faces possession of a controlled substance, impaired driving, dangerous driving and possession of ammunition.
Police didn’t reveal what kind of weapon was used in the shootings.
