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.

Evan Robert Mossing, 37, has been charged with seven firearm offences, including discharging a firearm with intent while being reckless, careless use of a firearm and possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose.

The other three suspects fled the area, and police are now asking for the public’s help in identifying them.

The first suspect is described as 20- to 30-years-old, five-feet-eight inches tall, with a slim build, black hair, brown eyes and a pierced left ear. Police said he was wearing a light-green winter jacket, a black Toronto Raptors sweater, blue jeans, black/brown winter boots, a black baseball hat and sunglasses.
