STONEY NAKODA – Cochrane RCMP is still investigating the Stoney Nakoda shooting where it appears a 32-year-old man from the Nation was shot in the foot.
On Tuesday (July 28) morning around 7:20 a.m., Cochrane RCMP received a call of a man shot and were dispatched to the neighbouring First Nation, where upon arrival, officers located a man who had suffered what appeared to be a single gunshot wound to the top of his left foot, said Cochrane Cpl. Troy Savinkoff.
“We got there and administered first aid to the victim … then we called out the [Police Dog Service Unit] and the Emergency Response Team, [the suspects] were fleeing in a car – initially, they didn’t stop but about 100 metres up the road they pulled into a driveway then ran into a house.”
RCMP secured the scene and the suspects walked out of the house not long after, Savinkoff explained.
Two male suspects were arrested and a third individual, a female from the Nation, who had outstanding warrants and was found in possession of methamphetamine, was also arrested.
Once charges are laid, RCMP will provide the names those involved.
Savinkoff said the investigation is “still really onset” and will continue in the following days.
Officials said all parties are well-known to each other and also known to police.
