Two men killed in shooting in northeast Calgary parking lot
Police are investigating a shooting in the city’s northeast that resulted in the death of two men on Wednesday morning.
Emergency crews were called to a parking lot in the 2400 block of 37 Avenue N.E. at about 2:15 a.m. for reports of shots fired.
Police found two men inside a vehicle, suffering from gunshot wounds.
One man was pronounced dead at the scene and the other man succumbed to his injuries in hospital.
Police tarped off a black, Mercedes at the scene and say the attack was not random.
Witnesses reported seeing another vehicle leaving the area and investigators are examining surveillance footage from nearby businesses.
Ozzy Abou Ghanem owns the Mazaj Lounge and Restaurant and says a number of businesses share the parking lot near the scene.
“We have a great security camera, we cooperate with the police to help them solve everything,” he said. “It affected too many businesses, everybody around this parking lot is affected.”
The identities of the two men have not been released and an autopsy is scheduled for Thursday.
