Devon, Alberta – on August 18, a single gunshot was fired at a vehicle which was stationary at a gas station in Devon. The single round struck the frame of the gas pump and no one was injured in this incident. RCMP are looking for public assistance in identifying the culprit.
Shortly after 2:30 a.m., a blue Toyota Tundra was driving by a stopped vehicle when a male allegedly pointed a firearm and fired one round at the stopped vehicle. The Tundra then fled the location in an unknown direction.
The Toyota Tundra was later found abandoned on Highway 60 south of Devon. Police Dog Services attended the location of the truck, however, no track was initiated. The truck was determined to have been stolen earlier out of Wetaskiwin.
Several RCMP units are actively engaged in this investigation including Wetaskiwin General Investigation Section, Forensic Identification Section and Edmonton RCMP Serious Crimes Branch.
Preliminary investigation suggests that this was not a random incident.
