Police canvassed the area for CCTV as part of the investigation and asked the public for help Wednesday to identify a man seen in the footage.

The man — described as having a slim build and wearing a dark jacket, black shoes and dark pants with a white stripe on the leg — is believed to have been a passenger in a red truck seen speeding away from the shooting scene. Investigators said the truck appeared to have some kind of large equipment in the back, according to witnesses.

As police continue their investigation into what they describe as a “targeted” shooting, they said the motive is still unknown. Investigators also haven’t had much co-operation from victims.

Police are asking anyone with information on the incident, or who may be able to identify the person of interest, the driver of the truck or the location of the truck, to call police at 403-266-1234 or contact Crime Stoppers.
