As he was trying to block that truck from leaving, a second vehicle pulled up and occupants fired a single shot at the man.

The vehicles involved are a black Ford F150 FX4 with a red pinstripe down the side and an Alberta license plate, and a red higher end SUV with an Idaho license plate.

Police say they’re still investigating, and they’re warning people not to approach the suspect vehicles if they see them but to instead call 911.

People with information can call 403-851-8000, or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
