Calgary, Alberta – The Alberta Serious Incident Response Team (ASIRT) has been called in following an officer-involved shooting earlier this morning.
At approximately 2:30 a.m., Tuesday, Nov. 29, 2016, we were called to the 1700 block of 11 Avenue S.W., for a check on welfare of a woman who was screaming and acting erratically, pounding on windows of nearby vehicles and the front door of an apartment building. As officers arrived on scene, they were confronted by a woman allegedly carrying weapons. Shortly after arrival, events escalated and a one-year member of the CPS discharged her Service firearm. The 27-year-old woman was struck and subsequently died as a result.
No officers were injured as a result of the incident.
The members involved in this incident have the full support of the Executive and the Calgary Police Association.
