Edmonton police say a 20-year-old man was found shot in the head near an apartment building in the city’s southwest on Monday afternoon.

Emergency crews were called to the Heatheridge Estates Apartments on Saddleback Road east of 18 Avenue at around 3:07 p.m. Police said they found the injured man in the apartment’s parking lot.

He was transported to hospital with critical injuries.

Police said the suspect left in a vehicle described only as “a white Pontiac” and that the vehicle’s side or rear windows may be smashed out.

Residents were kept out of the apartment building on Monday afternoon as police worked to ensure the area was safe.

On Friday, police said detectives continue to investigate and are asking for anyone who may have surveillance video in the area that could help them to get in touch.
