ASIRT looking for witnesses to police involved shooting

The Alberta Serious Incident Response Team is looking for witnesses in relation to a police-involved shooting in downtown Calgary.

A man remains in hospital after being shot by police in an alley between 7th and 8th Avenues near Centre street.

According to investigators, the man had been disrupting an anti-racism rally at City Hall.

Now, ASIRT is looking for witnesses to the incident, as it happened in a very public place and in broad daylight.

“We know there would have been a number of people in the vicinity in the buildings nearby and the buildings surrounding the alley where the officer involved shooting occurred, and also just pedestrians walking nearby,” Susan Hughson, Executive Director of ASIRT said.

Anyone who saw what happened is asked to contact the ASIRT southern office at 403-592-4306.
