An investigation continues after a Calgary police officer shot a man in a southeast neighbourhood — and witnesses are recalling how the situation unfolded.
“I came home last night, sat down and heard five gunshots,” said Fred Smith who was arriving home from work at the time of the incident. “Then I came outside and there were police everywhere.”
By Saturday afternoon all that remained of the scene was police tape and a blood-stained road on 35 Street S.E. in Radisson Heights.
Police were called to the 1500 block at around 10 p.m. Friday after they received reports from residents of a man carrying weapons and acting erratically.
Marie Ball was on her back deck when she heard yelling out in front of her home as police encountered the man.
