Calgary CTrain stations shut down after fatal collision

Reports of shooting caused panic at CrossIron Mills Shopping Centre north of Calgary Monday, where one person was injured and the mall was shut down shortly after.

Just after 7 p.m., officers were called to the parking lot near the food court entrance where the shooting took place.

“They were screaming and running to their cars and I panicked.”

Kendell Beleshko, who was at the mall at the time said, “I suddenly heard all this screaming and saw a massive amount of people – several dozen people – running out of the mall.”

“I got scared too and got into my vehicle as well and just sort of followed the parade out of here.” Beleshko further explained.

A Calgary Police spokesman confirmed one person had suffered gunshot wounds. EMS later confirmed that the victim was a man. His injuries were not life-threatening and he was taken to the hospital where he is currently being treated for his injuries.

At around 9:30 p.m. on Monday, the Alberta RCMP tweeted “the incident at CrossIron Mills has been resolved”.

The RCMP believe the attack was targeted, but that there is no ongoing danger to the public.
