A Sherwood Park man faces first-degree and attempted murder charges following a morning shooting in Calgary.
The incident occurred around 8:20 a.m. on Aug. 18 in Calgary's southwest community of Evergreen. Police were called to a home for reports of a man and woman who appeared to have been shot.
The woman, 31-year-old Nakita Baron, was declared deceased on the scene. The man is in hospital and in stable condition.
As a result of the police's investigation, 34-year-old Michael Arnold of Sherwood Park was arrested by Edmonton Police on Thursday (Aug. 25). Arnold faces one first-degree murder charge and one attempted murder charge.
"Our Homicide Unit conducted a thorough investigation to find answers in what was a brazen act of violence that occurred in broad daylight," said Staff Sergeant Sean Gregson of the Calgary Police Service Homicide Unit.
"We would like to thank the public, the media and our law enforcement partners at the Edmonton Police Service and Strathcona RCMP for their support. This investigation could not have come together so quickly without their assistance."
Arnold has been transported to Calgary, where he remains in custody. His next court date is Sept. 26.
