Edmonton police investigating fatal shooting and truck fire

Edmonton police say a man is dead following a fatal shooting incident in the Evansdale neighbourhood Tuesday morning.

EPS says officers responded to a report of gunshots around 1:30 a.m., near 94 Street and 145 Avenue.

When they arrived at the scene, officers found a man dead inside a black truck.

Speaking to witnesses, investigators learned that a white truck was seen fleeing the area at the time.

EPS says they’ve since learned that the truck was stolen on March 18, before urging members of the public to come forward if they’ve seen the truck parked anywhere between Mar. 18 and Tuesday morning.

“The truck had visible red tape along the rear passenger tail light,” says Staff Sergeant Rob Bilawey of the EPS Homicide Section. “While there are many white GMC trucks in the city, we are hopeful that someone may recognize this truck’s unique tail light whether it was driving on a roadway or noticeably parked for a period of time.”
