According to a release from the Calgary Police Service, a man in his 40s was reportedly screaming and throwing things in the hallway of his apartment building in Calgary’s Kingsland neighbourhood, which prompted a response from police officers.

“At approximately 9:30 p.m., an officer-involved-shooting occurred. Although specific details can’t be released, police can confirm weapons were recovered at the scene,” the release states.

The man was taken to hospital with life-threatening injuries that night and alter died on Sunday morning.

The Alberta Serious Incident Response Team is investigating the incident, and an autopsy is planned for this Monday.
