There’s word the RCMP have arrested a suspect they believe was involved in the violence in Edmonton and area, earlier today. They are continuing to look for a second suspect who’s believed to be travelling by foot somewhere east of Lloydminster.
RCMP and Edmonton police working together—following a shooting, two carjackings and car fire between the capital city and Strathcona County.
Police say they were tracking a Ford Fusion that they believed was involved in an armed carjacking in the city….
In the meantime–Sherwood Park RCMP got word a pizza delivery man was shot near the Holiday Inn Express on Broadmoor Boulevard…
That man is in the hospital—and his injuries are non life-threatening.
Shortly afterwards–they got word of a carjacking at the “Flying J” truckstop close to Highway 16.
A black Chrysler 300 was taken in that.
Then RCMP got word of a vehicle fire near the Ukrainian Cultural Village—which is where they found a Ford Fusion that had been torched….
The stolen Chrylser was later seen speeding through Vegreville—-and was eventually found in Saskatchewan.
So the hunt continues for the suspects……and you can bet they’re armed and dangerous. (photo credit–CTV)
