A 32-year-old Alberta man is dead after a weekend shooting in the east end of Osborne Village.
A black SUV and a dark coloured car reported to have an Alberta license plate sat at the corner of Donald Street and Stradbrook Avenue for much of the day, Saturday, after police responded to gunshots at that location around 3 a.m.
Two men were taken from the scene to the hospital with what appeared to be gunshot wounds.
On Sunday, police released a prepared statement explaining one of the men, Theodoros Belayneh, 32, from Edmonton, Alta., had died, while the other victim was upgraded to stable condition.
Back in 2014, Belayneh, along with two others, was arrested and charged with numerous weapon related offenses after a traffic stop where police discovered two loaded .45 calibre handguns, including one that was stolen from Saskatchewan.
Police spokesperson Const. Rob Carver said there were people around at the time of Saturday's shooting.
"We have interviewed a significant number of witnesses," Carver said. "The investigation is ongoing and we have not made any arrests at this point."
