The Homicide Unit is investigating after a man was found dead in the parking lot of a southwest apartment building on Wednesday morning.
Police were called to the 5700 block of 2 Street S.W. at around 10:00 a.m. for a check on welfare and found a man in his late 20s suffering from stab wounds. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
“We believe that this person was involved in some sort of confrontation, in-and-around this area. Again, the exact circumstances around it, at this particular time, are being investigated and sorted out by homicide investigators,” said Inspector Paul Wozney, from the Calgary Police Service Major Crimes Section.
Police say they don’t know if the man was able to communicate any information on what happened to first responders before he died.
Doug Matheson lives across the street from the scene and says the police prescence is a bit concerning.
“We live in a big city and things happen all over the place but being so close to where I live, just across the street, you start to think about things. It is a little bit scary, yes,” he said.
Police say they have not identified any suspects or persons of interest in the case.
“Often what happens, in our experience, is people will see something or they’ll hear something. They see a vehicle speeding away or a person running away and they don’t piece that together to maybe an event that may have happened in their community or on their street and what we’re asking people to do is if they saw something funny or they heard something, if they have CCTV, a camera that maybe points out on to the street near this area, we want to hear from those people,” said Wozney.
Anyone with information is asked to call the non-emergency line at 403-266-1234.Tips can also be left anonymously by contacting Crime Stoppers through either of the following methods:
