Calgary police are investigating after a man died in a drive-by shooting Thursday night in the Beltline.
Just after 9 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 30, officers responded to reports of gunshots on 10 Avenue SW.
When they arrived, police found a man who had been shot to death.
CCTV footage collected from the area confirmed the man had been walking on westbound 10 Avenue SW towards 6 Street SW, when a dark-coloured SUV pulled up next to him.
Police say someone in the vehicle fired multiple shots before leaving the scene.
The vehicle was last seen driving south on 6 Street SE and turning west onto 13 Avenue SW, investigators add.
After an autopsy Friday, police say the victim has been identified as a 40-year-old man who isn’t from Calgary.
Investigators say he has ties to Vancouver, Edmonton, and Halifax.
His name will be released when his family is notified, they add.
Police say no information is available as to whether the shooting was targeted.
Anyone with information, CCTV, or dashcam footage from the area around the time of the shooting is asked to contact police at 403-266-1234 or anonymously through CrimeStoppers.
