Calgary police say they do not have anyone in custody in relation to last night’s shooting in Falconridge.
A Thursday morning release had said a 39-year-old man was facing charges following a shooting in the northeast Calgary community on Wednesday evening.
Emergency crews were called to a home on Falton Close N.E. at around 7:30 p.m. for reports a man had been shot in the lower leg.
Investigators believe the shooting was sparked by an argument between two men that started inside the house
“The pair traded punches before one of the men allegedly pulled out a gun and shot the other in the calf,” police said in a Thursday news release.
“The victim ran from the home to a nearby address where a neighbour called police.”
Paramedics said the victim, a man in his 30s, was taken to hospital in stable, non-life-threatening condition.
Police said one man was arrested near the scene without incident. His name will be released once he has seen a Justice of the Peace.
It’s the second time in as many days that gunfire has erupted in Calgary.
On Tuesday, shots were fired in the East Village, including one bullet which travelled through the window of a ground-floor apartment.
