UPDATED: Bull has turned himself in to RCMP

Kashton Bull, 19, arrested for attempted murder

A Maskwacis man wanted in response to a shooting has turned himself into police.

Kashton Bull, 19, surrendered himself to police after a warrant was issued on Nov. 26 for his alleged involvement in a shooting on the Louis Bull First Nation about 25 km north of Ponoka.

Bull is facing a charge of attempted murder in the incident that took place on Nov. 16, where it’s alleged a 21-year-old man was shot while attending an outdoor round dance hosted by members of the community. The victim has since been released from hospital.

Members from both the RCMP’s Maskwacis Community Response Unit (CRU) and General Investigation Section (GIS) are continuing to investigate, though Bull was identified as a suspect courtesy of video surveillance and numerous witnesses at the scene.

Anyone with information on this incident are asked to contact the Maskwacis RCMP detachment at 780-585-3767 or call your local police detachment. If you want to remain anonymous, you can contact Crime Stoppers by phone at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS), by internet at www.tipsubmit.com, or by SMS.
