St. Albert RCMP continue to investigate the incident that occurred October 28, 2022, but can say they were called to a residence in the Northridge area at approximately 12:10 a.m. for a male individual with a firearm. A perimeter was set up around the area, several residences were evacuated for safety, and RCMP Emergency Response Team was deployed to assist St. Albert RCMP members.

Police maintained the scene and subsequently the male exited the residence with life threatening injuries.
