A Calgary police officer is hospitalized but in stable condition after he was shot on Wednesday afternoon in the city’s neighbourhood of Abbeydale by a suspect who was pronounced dead by authorities hours after fleeing the scene. 

The Calgary Police Service said that the situation started when a man with a weapon knocked on a door on Abadan Crescent around 9:30 a.m. demanding the homeowner hand over the keys to his vehicle.

The homeowner refused and the man fled the scene. Shortly after, neighbors reported gun shots close by.
