Police are still looking for a suspect after a 23-year-old man was shot dead in the southeast Calgary community of Willow Park on Wednesday.
At about 10:45 a.m., police were called to the 10300 block of Bonaventure Drive S.E. for reports of gunshots inside the Willow Park Centre, a building which houses a myriad of businesses including offices, retailers, and a probation office.
When they got there, they found a man in the area, suffering from extensive injuries.
He was rushed to hospital, but later died of his injuries. Police have identified the victim as 23-year-old Taylor Zanoni of Calgary.
Police searched the scene, but the suspect likely fled before they got there.
Investigators have spoken with dozens of eyewitnesses and are now poring over surveillance video for any clues that could help them out.
“There’s nothing to indicate that this is gang related,” said Staff Sergeant Doug Andrus of the CPS homicide unit. “We will be looking into (Zanoni’s) background.”
“There's nothing to indicate this is drug related.”
According to police, the shooting was not a random occurrence.
