Athabasca RCMP investigate shots fired

Athabasca, Alberta - On June 22, 2018, at approximately 1:00 a.m., Athabasca RCMP responded to a report of a shooting in front of the Grand Union Hotel and Bar in Athabasca, Alberta.  Witness information states that a group of 4 unknown Native males was approached by another unknown Native male.   When the lone male exited a dark-colored SUV vehicle and approached the group of 4, a physical altercation broke out.  The lone male was able to break free of the altercation, and someone was overheard stating “I’m going to shoot you”.  A moment later, a shot was heard.

The 4 males got into their Green GMC ½ tonne pickup truck and left the area, turning North on Highway 813.  It is still unknown if anyone was injured in this incident, as no victims have come forward.
