Calgary police have charged a man in relation to a 2004 homicide.

At roughly 4 p.m. on Saturday, police arrested a man near 37th Street and 17th Avenue S.W. and charged him with first-degree murder in connection to a nearly decade-old stabbing death.

Shane Johnson, 23, died on Jan. 25, 2004, after he was stabbed in a parking lot as he left NYLA nightclub in the 1200 block of First Street S.W.

It’s believed Johnson and another man had had an argument inside the bar earlier in the evening.

As Johnson left the club with his friends he became separated from the group. That’s when an unidentified man came from behind, stabbed him and ran, police said.

Police recently released security camera footage taken at a Greyhound bus station that they said shows the suspect buying a ticket three days after the killing.

It has not been confirmed whether the man arrested on Saturday is the same man in the video.
