Police say they received a report of a shooting in the area of 104 Street and 81 Avenue at around 1:30 a.m.

A man who was shot died at the scene.

Police say it’s fortunate no one else was injured during the shooting because numerous people were in the area at the time.

Investigators interviewed several people Sunday morning, but have not released any information about potential suspects or details about the victim.

The death is being called suspicious.
