Calgary police investigating early morning shooting in Somerset
WATCH: People living in the southwest Calgary community of Somerset were surprised to hear shots fired early Sunday morning in their neighbourhood. As Carolyn Kury de Castillo reports, a car believed to be connected to the incident was found with bullet holes in it.

Calgary police are investigating following a shooting at a home in the southwest community of Somerset on Sunday.

Officers received a call that shots rang out in the 100 block of Somerside Close S.W. around 3:15 a.m.

According to police, the suspects involved in the shooting fled the scene, and a bullet hit a wall of the home but nobody was injured.

Officers want to speak with “several individuals” who were inside the house at the time of the shooting.

After the shooting, police found an abandoned white BMW on the Highway 22X overpass over Macleod Trail S.W. that they believe is related to the incident.

The vehicle appeared to have bullet holes in the driver’s side door.

The investigation is ongoing, police are looking for suspects and no one has been taken into custody.

Nearby residents like Jennifer Lewis said the neighbourhood is quiet.

“We didn’t hear a thing. The cops actually had to come back a second time to knock on our door to see if we heard anything,” she said.

“We were like, ‘What? Gunshots were fired? Like what?’ That does not happen in Somerset.​”

Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call the Calgary police non-emergency number at 403-266-1234 or to contact Crime Stoppers anonymously.

Police said this is the city’s third shooting of 2020.
