Hobbema RCMP need help to ID suspects in shooting

  • Dec. 1, 2010 12:00 p.m.

Hobbema RCMP needs help from the community to identify the suspects responsible for a drive by shooting Nov. 26 on the Samson Reserve.

At 9 p.m., several rounds from a high-powered rifle were fired into a residence in the Knotts Landing area on the Samson Reserve, said Hobbema RCMP spokesman Const. Perry cardinal. Police believe the shots were fired from the street outside the residence, possibly from a boxy, older style, dark colored sedan.

A 28-year-old man who was standing in the living room of the residence was struck by several of the rounds and sustained life threatening injuries. Several other people who were inside the residence at the time, including a three-year-old child were unharmed.

The injured man was transported to an Edmonton- area hospital by STARS air ambulance and is in critical but stable condition. Police continue to investigate as the incident may be gang related.

Anyone with information regarding this shooting is asked to contact the Hobbema RCMP at 780-385-3502 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
