Shooting on 17th Avenue S.W. sends 1 to hospital

EMS took a man to hospital suffering "traumatic injuries" after a shooting on 17th Avenue S.W. on Monday.

Emergency crews were called to 17th Avenue and 10th Street S.W. where they found the man with a gun shot wound to his arm. He was taken to Foothills Medical Centre in life-threatening condition, the Calgary Police Service said, but has since stabilized.

Police shut down a section of 17th Avenue between Ninth Street and 11th Street S.W. while they investigated, however, it was later reopened. A section of 10th Street S.W., between Cameron Avenue and 17th Avenue S.W. remains closed.

Anyone with information is asked to call the police non-emergency line at 403-266-1234 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

Another Monday shooting in southeast Calgary is also under investigation by CPS. Officers say it is too early to know if the incidents were related.
