On July 27th, 2017 at approximately 7:00 am the Cochrane RCMP responded to a break in, in progress to a farm shop located in Springbank. While the RCMP were enroute to the location they were advised that the occupants of a second suspect vehicle had pointed a gun towards the shop owner and fired one shot.
The employees of the shop had interrupted the suspects as they were still loading up property and were actively trying to stop the thieves from leaving the property. Prior to police arrival, the property owner followed the ford truck and located it, in a parking lot nearby. As the property owner tried to block the ford truck from leaving the parking lot, a second vehicle pulled up beside the property owner and fired a shot at him. The vehicles involved are a black ford F150 FX4 with a distinct red pinstripe down the side and an Alberta license plate on it and a red higher end SUV with an Idaho license plate on it.
This incident is still currently being investigated, and further details will be released when they become available.
