Suspect in custody after shooting outside Calgary International Airport

Calgary police took one person into custody on Wednesday after a shooting outside the Calgary International Airport.

Officers were called to Airport Road N.E. just after noon for reports of shots fired.

In a posting on X, formerly Twitter, the Calgary Airport said the incident happened near the cellphone parking lot, a free area for drivers to park while waiting for friends or family to land.

Police say they apprehended a suspect shortly after arriving. Two people were treated in hospital for injuries.

Police said the incident was "targeted” and stemmed from a road rage confrontation near the airport, before ending near the cellphone lot.

A cab driver waiting near the area captured the violent incident on video.

The video shows one man face down on the sidewalk with another man on top of him. A third man yells at him asking why he pulled a gun. You can see a fourth man walking around with a firearm in his right hand.

Investigators confirmed the firearm was real.

The investigation closed several lanes of traffic in the area, prompting backups and delays. Police have not said if charges will be laid.

Anyone with information on the incident is asked to call police at 403-266-1234. Tips can also be submitted anonymously through Crime Stoppers.
