According to authorities, a lady died after a street fight ended in a four-car crash. The Calgary Police Service said it received reports of a firefight between two erratic vehicles in the city’s northeast on Tuesday night. According to authorities, stray gunfire struck at least two residences.
The two vehicles, a red Silverado truck and a grey Volkswagen Jetta sedan, continued to chase one other until hitting with two other vehicles at the junction, according to support Scott Boyd. “The occupants of the truck and limo proceeded to discharge fire while fleeing the area on foot,” Boyd said at a news conference on Wednesday.
The driver of a silver van, a 40-year-old woman who was not involved in the shooting, was pronounced dead at the scene. Boyd said the cause of death will be determined through an autopsy. Family and friends have identified the woman as Angela McKenzie, a mother of five. Between the ages of nine and seventeen.]
Her father died earlier this year and they said it was unclear who was looking after her. “I’m sure we’ll hear more tragic details in the coming days,” Boyd said, adding that he believed she was a “truly innocent victim.” The driver of the other vehicle involved in the collision was not injured. Boyd said the man driving the gray sedan was spotted by police.
He suffered gunshot wounds and was taken to hospital, where he remained stable. “Two passengers of Silverado – a man and a woman – fled the area in an unknown direction,” he said. Police said they were not found.
