Two charged, guns seized following apartment shooting in Calgary

Calgary, Alberta – Two men have been charged in connection with a shooting in a downtown apartment earlier this week.

Around 3 a.m., on Tuesday, Jan. 25, 2022, police were called to an apartment in the 900 block of 14 Avenue S.W., when the resident reported waking up to a loud bang and finding a hole in his bedroom wall, just above the headboard of his bed. Based on the evidence at the scene, officers believed a shotgun was fired from the neighbouring apartment. Thankfully, no one was injured as a result of the shooting.

Investigators obtained a warrant to enter the apartment and the Tactical Unit was called to assist in executing the warrant on Wednesday, Jan. 26, 2022. Just prior to their entry, one of the suspects was observed scaling down the exterior of the building from the fourth floor. He was swiftly taken into custody without incident. A second suspect was arrested within the apartment.

The following items were seized from the apartment:

.22 caliber rifle rounds

Small amount of methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia

Loaded .270 bolt-action Savage rifle

Loaded 12-guage Derya MK12 shotgun
