One person shot & carjacking in Sherwood Park

The RCMP are investigating an overnight carjacking incident that began in Edmonton and moved east into Saskatchewan.

Officers in Strathcona County were notified by police in Edmonton, around 12:30 a.m., to watch out for a black Ford Fusion that was involved in an armed carjacking in the city.

Around the same time, RCMP officers were responding to a report of shots fired in Sherwood Park at the Holiday Inn Express on Broadmoor Boulevard. A man was found at that scene suffering from gunshot wounds to his shoulder and neck. He was sent to the Royal Alexandria hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

About 5 minutes later, another armed carjacking occurred at the Flying “J” gas station. Police confirm that the black Ford Fusion was involved, a shotgun was produced and a black Chrysler 300 was stolen. Both vehicles then left the scene.

Shortly after, a black Ford Fusion was discovered on fire near Highway 16 and RR 195. The Chrysler 300 was spotted heading east through the Vegerville area and later found by police in Saskatchewan.

The suspects have not been located and police warn that they are believed to be armed and dangerous.
