The two males have been taken to hospital for treatment.

One of the victims is well-known to police but Splinter says it’s too early to say if the shooting was targeted.

“There’s a great deal about this that we don’t know,” Splinter says. “The scene will be locked down for several hours.”

Police forensic teams are on-site and currently Laity Street is closed between Lougheed Highway while they continue their investigation.
