A 37-year-old man is facing several firearm charges and police are still looking to identify three additional suspects in a shooting that occurred in northeast Calgary last week.
On Nov. 17, police said a group of four men were involved in a physical altercation in the upper level of the Marlborough CTrain station, at 899 36 Street N.E.
Officers said the violence escalated when the suspects pulled out a pipe and a knife. Members of the public attempted to flee the area, however several minutes later one of the suspects returned to the upper level and fired a flare gun twice “causing one of the other suspect’s jackets to briefly catch on fire.”
The man who fired the flare gun fled the area on a departing CTrain and was arrested without incident by police at the Franklin CTrain Station. He is now facing several charges.
