On Tuesday, the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) said Arfmann, 65, was injured in the shootout and is receiving treatment in hospital.
A person at the scene shared a photo of the suspect with Global News.
IHIT said he did not have a valid firearms licence. To their knowledge, he did not have a valid driver’s licence.
Sister-in-law Pamela Arfmann told Global News that Oscar is a retired truck driver, who was believed to be living in a motor home in B.C.
Last year, he sold a property in the area of St. Paul, Alta. before coming to the province to stay with family.
She said Oscar had been struggling with mental health issues since his wife’s death.

“He lost his wife about three years ago and he’s just gone off since then,” Pamela said. “He hasn’t been the same since he lost his wife.
“He talked to himself a lot. And he was just not, it’s hard to explain, he was just not the same person. He talked about demons and stuff like that too, that he was demon-possessed at times.”
Anyone with information about Arfmann is asked to contact IHIT.
