Lethbridge police are investigating the death of a man in an apparent shooting on Thursday evening.
Officers were called to a home in the 200 block of University Drive W. at around 10:30 p.m.
“Although the investigation is still in the early stages, investigators have determined that this is not a random incident and the individuals involved were known to one another,” Insp. Jason Walper said on Friday.
Police said the victim, a 35-year-old man, was found dead at the scene.
“All we can say at this point is that multiple shots were fired inside the residence,” Walper said.
“A person at the residence did call police and did state somebody had been shot.”
Police said they do not believe there is any risk to the public.
So far no arrests have been made.
“At this time, we have no persons in custody, but I can assure… the public our officers are working diligently and have been doing so throughout the night and into this morning to try to identify to bring those persons who are responsible to justice,” Walper said.
WATCH: Lethbridge police inspector Jason Walper addressed reporters Friday in connection to a man’s death on the city’s west side.
The man’s body was transported to the medical examiner’s office in Calgary for an autopsy that’s expected to be completed on Friday.
Investigators have not released the victim’s name.
“And at this point, we’re following up on a lot of leads. Hopefully, later on today (Friday), we’ll have a little more information to provide.”
Police were also on scene at a second home on Henderson Lake Boulevard on Friday, but did not elaborate on what led them to that property.
“I’m really not at liberty to say exactly how we’ve got there, but certainly we’re following up on our investigation that we’ve determined to date,” Walper said.
