ASIRT investigating officer-involved shooting following serious stabbing in West Edmonton

For Immediate Release: 02-Mar-2024 @ 11:44 AM
MRU #: A-R24005

A 36-year-old male suspect sustained non-life-threatening injuries following an officer-involved shooting and the Alberta Serious Incident Response Team (ASIRT) is investigating.

On Friday, March 1, 2024, at approximately 7:30 p.m., West Branch officers were dispatched to a reported assault outside a pub in the area of Winterburn Road and 107 Avenue. It was reported to police that a 36-year-old male suspect had stabbed another male and fled the scene in a truck. 

A short time later, it was reported that a civilian vehicle pursued the suspect and was subsequently rammed by the suspect’s truck. West Branch officers located the truck in the area of 98A Avenue and 178 Street where a confrontation occurred between the 36-year-old and police, resulting in an officer discharging their firearm. The suspect was struck and sustained non-life-threatening injuries. He was treated and transported to hospital by paramedics. 

No EPS officers or civilians were injured during this dynamic incident. 

The man who was stabbed sustained serious injuries.

A 46.1 notification has since been provided to the Alberta Director of Law Enforcement, who has directed ASIRT to conduct an investigation into this officer-involved shooting. 

As such, the EPS cannot provide any additional information at this time. All further media inquiries should be directed to ASIRT.   

Anyone with any information about this or any other crime is asked to contact the EPS at 780-423-4567 or #377 from a mobile phone. Anonymous information can also be submitted to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or online at www.p3tips.com/250
