Man charged in deadly Calgary Superstore shooting, second man sought
Calgary police have laid charges in a shooting in a busy Superstore parking lot over the May long weekend that left two men dead, but are still looking for a second man who may have information on the murders.
Colin Reitberger, 23, and Anees Amr, 26, were shot in the parking lot, located on 130 Avenue S.E., at around 7:55 p.m. on Sunday, May 21.
After speaking with a dozen witnesses, police said it seemed Reitberger and Amr had arrived at the parking lot together before being shot by a third man who arrived in a separate vehicle.
On Friday, police announced 20-year-old Christian Joffre Ouellette had been arrested and charged with two counts of first-degree murder. He’s scheduled to appear in court on Monday.
During a Friday news conference, Inspector Don Coleman said Ouellette was known to the victims.
“I think the relationship of the accused to the victims would be in a criminal network association-type manner.”
Coleman said the shooting is believed to be drug-related.
Man wanted on warrants for weapons offences also sought by police
Although the vehicle believed to be used in the shooting was recovered shortly after, police say they are searching for a second vehicle that was used to drop the suspect at a gas station, located at 70 Freeport Blvd N.E., after the murders.
The vehicle is described as a red Dodge Durango SLT, likely a 2004 to 2006 model, with a sunroof.
“We anticipate that the person who was in that vehicle, driving it, picked [Ouellete] up. Maybe he knew Mr. Ouellete, maybe he just picked him up. We don’t know what the circumstances are,” Coleman said.
Police are also looking to the public for help locating a man who they say “may have more information” about the murders.
William Kincade-Miller is believed to be in Ontario and is making his way to New Brunswick.
Police describe him as being 6’2” tall, with a slim build, blue eyes and short brown hair.
“We believe Mr. Kincade-Miller has information relating to this murder and we’d like to speak to him about it,” Coleman said. “He could potentially be anywhere, including Calgary still.”
On May 27, police issued a public plea for help as they searched for Kincade-Miller, who they said was wanted in connection with various weapons offences and for breaching his parole.
At the time, police said Kincade-Miller wasn’t at home during a check on curfew at about 10 p.m. on Saturday, May 25.
In a news release, police said it was believed he had been involved in other offences, including “allegedly trafficking weapons.”
