Calgary shooting suspect arrested after climbing out 4th floor window

One of two suspects in a shooting at a Beltline apartment building was arrested after climbing out a fourth-floor window as police executed a search warrant.

The gunfire happened about 3 a.m. on Tuesday in the 900 block of 14th Avenue S.W. when a resident woke up to a loud bang and found a hole in his bedroom wall, just above his headboard.

Investigators obtained a warrant on Wednesday and the tactical team was called in to assist.

“Just prior to their entry, one of the suspects was observed scaling down the exterior of the building from the fourth floor,” police said.

“He was swiftly taken into custody without incident. A second suspect was arrested within the apartment.”

A number of items were seized during the search, including: 

  • .270 caliber rifle rounds;
  • .22 caliber rifle rounds;
  • 9mm rounds;
  • Small amount of methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia;
  • Loaded .270 bolt-action Savage rifle;

  • Break barrel .177 caliber BB rifle;
  • .177 caliber black BB handgun;
  • Body armour;
  • Swords, and;
  • Metal box containing an assortment of ammunition.
