Shooter killed by Calgary police after bus driver almost hit
A near miss involving a transit driver set off a tense confrontation between a shooter and police officers that led to the gunman’s death.
Police warned residents in the northwest Calgary neighbourhood of Huntington Hills to stay indoors and in their basements on Sunday afternoon following news of a shooter. Officers in a police helicopter flying over the area used a bullhorn to reinforce the message.
“The service received a 911 call that a Calgary transit bus driver reported a shot fired into the bus that narrowly missed the driver,” police Chief Roger Chaffin said at a news conference.
Bullets being shot from a home also hit a number of surrounding residences. More than a dozen officers, including members of the tactical team, surrounded the home before the gunman was shot and killed.
