Shelkie said police were told a person in a vehicle had shot a firearm at someone in another vehicle near the intersection of McGill Road and Summit Drive.

Shelkie said the suspect vehicle is described as a black pickup Escalade with an Alberta licence plate. She said there appeared to be two people in the vehicle, both wearing bandanas over their faces.

The victim shot at was in a small silver car, which had one or more of its windows damaged by the gunfire.
