CALGARY – Police are investigating a series of shootings throughout the city that took place in a violent 24-hour period, but don’t believe the incidents are connected.

In the most recent incident, police say a man was declared deceased after being dropped off at the Peter Lougheed Centre with a gunshot wound to his stomach around 2:30 a.m. on Monday.

Officers haven’t been able to determine where the shooting took place, or who brought the victim to the hospital.

Police spokesperson Kevin Brookwell said family members in Calgary have been notified, and an autopsy to determine cause of death is set for Tuesday. He said surveillance video from the hospital has been obtained, but there are still “more answers than questions” in the case.

Brookwell said it doesn’t appear to be related to a shooting hours earlier in the city’s southwest.

Police were called to the 1700 block of 28th Street S.W. around 8 p.m. on Sunday. The victim, a man in his 20s, remains in hospital in critical condition.

Police are also investigating a deadly daytime shooting along Edmonton Trail.

Investigators were called to the 2600 block of Edmonton Trail N.E. around 2 p.m. on Sunday.

When they arrived, officers found a man suffering from critical injuries. Paramedics rushed the victim to hospital in life-threatening condition, but he later died.

Officers used a HAWCS helicopter to locate a suspect just a few blocks away, who has since been charged with first-degree murder.

Anyone with information of any of these incidents is asked to call police at 403-266-1234, or Crime Stoppers.
