The Calgary Police Service’s homicide unit is investigating a death Saturday night in the southeast.
Police said just before 10 p.m., they were called to the 5200 block of Memorial Drive S.E. for reports of shots fired.
When they arrived, a man in his 30s was found on the street in medical distress.
Despite attempts to save him, the man died at the scene, police said.
Several streets around Memorial Drive S.E. were taped off overnight as police investigated.
Family identifies victim
Family of Jesse Shaye Troy George-Raweater, 30, identified him as the victim on Sunday.
George-Raweater was a father to a four-year-old boy and will be remembered for his funny and goofy personality.
“He was cheeky, funny, loving and outgoing,” said his cousin Heather Criddle.
“He made major life changes in the past few months to lead a more healthy, happy, sober life. We were all so proud of him for taking the steps in the right direction… Words can’t describe how our family is feeling and the impact it will have.”
His mother, Jolene George-Crowchild, said he was at the house in the 5200 block of Memorial Drive S.E. when an altercation took place.
An autopsy is scheduled for Monday.
