On Friday, Oct. 8, at approximately 8:20 p.m., an adult male complainant was having dinner with his family at a restaurant in a south Edmonton commercial complex near 17 Avenue and 99 Street.
It was reported to police that an unidentified male suspect approached the restaurant from the exterior of the building. He then walked up to a window directly in front of where the family were sitting and fired multiple gunshots through the glass at them.
The male complainant sustained several gun-shot wounds and was taken to hospital with serious, non-life-threatening injuries. Other family members, including children, staff and restaurant patrons were fortunate to escape injury.
The suspect fled the immediate scene on foot, before getting into an SUV driven by a second suspect.
The male complainant has since been discharged from hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
