The RCMP is asking for tips in connection with a homicide investigation looking into the death of a man in central Alberta this week.
At about 4 a.m. on Monday, officers from the Sylvan Lake RCMP detachment went to a location on Range Road 34, west of Eckville, Alta., after someone reported a shooting.
Police said when officers arrived, they found a 46-year-old man who had sustained “serious, life-threatening injuries.”
“The victim was transported to hospital, however, died from his injuries,” the RCMP said in a news release issued Tuesday. “The Alberta RCMP major crimes unit has taken over the investigation.”
Police did not confirm if they have a suspect or suspects or if they have made any arrests in the case. They also did not confirm if the man died because of a shooting.
Anyone with information about what happened is asked to call the Sylvan Lake RCMP detachment at 403-887-3333 or their local police department. Tips can also be anonymously submitted by calling Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS) or contacting them online at http://www.P3Tips.com.
