A man who was shot during a recent crime spree is in stable condition.
 
On Tuesday (Mar.27), shortly after 4 p.m., police responded to a possible home invasion and kidnapping in Edmonton.
 
Reportedly, two men were abducted at gunpoint, assaulted and robbed by a group of individuals. The men were able to escape with non-life-threatening injuries.

Around 10:30 p.m., police spotted the vehicle believed to have been involved in the kidnapping. The vehicle allegedly met with a second vehicle, which was later found to have been taken from Fort Saskatchewan.

Both vehicles left Edmonton on Highway 15 and were involved in a road rage incident.

The suspects stopped at the intersection of 18th Street and Manning Drive and a firearm was allegedly discharged, hitting a nearby motorist.

The motorist, a 38-year-old man lost control of his vehicle and veered into a ditch.
 
According to police, homicide detectives were called in as they didn't expect the victim to survive. The victim wasn't known to the suspects.
 
After suffering life-threatening injuries, Edmonton Police Services have confirmed the victim is no longer on life support.

Following the shooting, both suspect vehicles continued to travel northbound toward Gibbons, where they were later stopped with the assistance of Air1, the EPS Canine and Tactical Unit, Northeast Division officers and the Fort Saskatchewan RCMP.
 
Five people of varied ages have been taken into custody and charged.
