Attempted murder charges laid in ‘targeted’ southern Alberta shooting
LETHBRIDGE, Alta. – Charges that include four counts of attempted murder have been laid after what police are calling a targeted shooting at a home in Lethbridge, Alta.
Four people in the residence escaped injury when several shots were fired around 9:00 p.m. Sunday.
City police determined the suspect left the city soon after, but the RCMP later chased and arrested a man near the small community of Granum, northwest of Lethbridge.
Investigators said a rifle and ammunition were later found in his vehicle.
Robert John Sheppard, a 32-year-old Lethbridge resident, is also facing several firearm-and weapons-related charges.
He was remanded in custody for a Tuesday court appearance.
