RCMP provide update on German tourist shooting

Last Updated Aug 16, 2018 at 5:02 pm MST

RCMP say they still have no suspects or motive in the shooting of a German tourist, west of Calgary.

The 60-year-old was driving on Highway 1A with his wife, son and son’s girlfriend two weeks ago when someone in a car pulled up beside them and shot the man in the head.

RCMP Cpl. Curtis Peters says police did seize a vehicle and take one person into custody.

“Both that individual, as well as that vehicle, have been fully investigated,” he said. “We are ruling them out of being involved.”

The man has since been flown back to Germany with life-altering injuries.

RCMP have released photos of the type of vehicle the victim was driving, as well as maps of the area where he was shot, in hopes of jogging people’s memories.

A tip line has been established for potential witnesses to contact the investigative team. Information can be shared by calling 1-844-887-6287. 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 text message.
