When they arrived, they found a man in his 30s who had been shot and was fighting for his life.

While police were searching the area for suspects, another man in his 30s arrived at Foothills Medical Centre with gunshot wounds.

He is in hospital in serious but non-life-threatening condition. Police believe the man may be connected to the downtown incident.

At this point in the investigation, police are still working to determine the motive behind the deadly incident and how the two men are connected.

An autopsy is scheduled for early next week.
