EDMONTON – A man wanted on a Canada-wide warrant for attempted murder has been arrested without incident.

Kenneth Barry Wallage was arrested in downtown Calgary, the City of Calgary said in a media release Saturday afternoon.

Wallage was wanted following an incident in southern Alberta last weekend.

On Saturday, Dec. 28, 2013, RCMP responded after shots were fired in Warner, Alberta, located about 65 kilometres southeast of Lethbridge.

Police say Wallage allegedly fired a shotgun into a trailer where two people were sleeping. Officers say multiple shots were fired at the bed inside the trailer, narrowly missing the pair.

On Friday, police said Wallage stole a black 2004 Dodge 1500 truck with Alberta licence plate RUJ-371. The truck was a four door, four wheel drive half-ton pickup. It had a black grill and was missing the driver’s side mirror. The pickup also had chrome strips along the bottom of the body.

The following picture of a similar truck was provided by RCMP:

Wallage was believed to be in possession of a 12-gauge pump action shotgun and was considered armed and dangerous.

He is now facing two counts of attempted murder charges.
