Calgary police are investigating an early morning shooting that sent a man in his early 20s to the hospital in life-threatening condition this morning, in the city's Northeast community of Huntington Hills. 

Police said they were called to the 6500 block of Huntridge Hill Northeast at approximately 6:45 a.m., for reports of a shooting.

Upon arrival, officers found the victim suffering from an apparent gunshot wound. The man's condition has since been upgraded to stable. Police added that they believe the incident was targeted and that the victim and suspect(s) are known to each other. 

"Investigators believe the shooting occurred at the same location where the man was found, as evidence indicated a nearby residence had been struck, which is believed to be associated with the victim. No one inside the residence was harmed," CPS stated.

The area surrounding the incident was cordoned off and traffic was diverted for several hours on Wednesday morning. 

Investigators have reviewed CCTV footage and have interviewed witnesses, however, they are continuing to ask individuals who have yet to speak with police to come forward.

"Our efforts to address gun violence rely on strong community support. If you have information that could help an investigation, such as witnessing suspicious behaviour or vehicles, please contact police. Even something small can have a great impact on an investigation," police added.

No arrests have been made at this time, as police continue to investigate. 

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact police by calling 403-266-1234. Tips can also be submitted anonymously to Crime Stoppers.
