Cal­gary po­lice have iden­ti­fied the vic­tim of a fa­tal shoot­ing on Fri­day night in Sig­nal Hill as 22-year-old Mohsen Al Nemesh.

Po­lice were called to the 100 block of Sig­nal Hill Cir­cle S.W. shortly after 11 p.m. on Fri­day for re­ports of shots fired.

Al Nemesh was found dead when po­lice ar­rived. An au­topsy by the Of­fice of the Chief Med­i­cal Ex­am­iner has since con­cluded.

A sec­ond vic­tim, a 20-year-old man, was taken to hos­pi­tal in lifethreat­en­ing con­di­tion. His con­di­tion has since been up­dated to sta­ble.

Dozens of po­lice of­fi­cers flooded the south­west neigh­bour­hood shortly after shots were re­ported on Fri­day night.

Paul Lee, who lives in a home near the scene, heard about a small gath­er­ing at a house in the 100 block of Sig­nal Hill Cir­cle.

“This is kind of out of the blue,” Lee said, who de­scribed the fam­ily that lives in the house as a nice fam­ily.

“Once in a while teenagers have a party, but it never gets out of hand. (This time) things got out of hand.”

Bul­let holes could be seen in the front win­dow of the house Satur­day morn­ing as mem­bers of the Cal­gary po­lice crime scene unit and homi­cide unit combed the block, look­ing for ev­i­dence and talk­ing to neigh­bours.

In­ves­ti­ga­tors are ask­ing the pub­lic to as­sist with in­for­ma­tion about the events that led up to the shoot­ing in­ci­dent, in par­tic­u­lar the prior where­abouts and ac­tiv­i­ties of the men who were shot.
