Edmonton police are hoping the public can help shed more light after a man was found dead on a sidewalk Wednesday evening.
At around 8:15 p.m. on Jan. 9, 2019, officers responded to multiple reports of shots fired near 77 Street and 166 Avenue.
A neighbour, who called 911, said the whole situation was surreal.
“I was just sitting watching TV on the couch and I heard these four bangs, like fireworks,” Rolando Navarro told CityNews.
“I came to look outside, and my mom started screaming that somebody was on the ground. And I said get down,” Navarro added.
When police arrived, they found an injured 52-year-old man lying on a sidewalk in front of a house. EMS pronounced the man dead on scene.
Police have identified the man as Enzo Campoli, in hopes the public will provide tips or information that could help solve the crime.
Navarro said Campoli lived with his parents, but always had a cordial relationship with neighbours.
“I’ve been here since 2016 and he’s always been a nice guy, always says hi and shovelling the snow all the time. Feel sorry for the family,” Navarro said.
“You never know when something is going to happen, especially to someone who is a good person.”
