Crime spree ends with shooting, carjackings in Sherwood Park, Edmonton

It's believed the investigation is connected to two carjacking cases in the Edmonton area early Thursday morning, but Saskatchewan RCMP are not yet confirming the nature of the Edmonton incident.

According to the RCMP news release, the situation began last night in the Edmonton Police Service and Alberta RCMP area, and the individuals involved may be armed and are considered risky.

At about 12:35 a.m., Stathcona RCMP were called to assist Edmonton police who were tracking a black Ford Fusion. RCMP said a man was shot in the shoulder and neck area.

About five minutes later, police said the Ford Fusion was involved in another armed carjacking with a shotgun, one block north of the hotel at the Flying J gas station near Highway 16.

Shortly after, a black Ford Fusion was discovered on fire near Highway 16 and Range Road 195, east of Edmonton. Police have not confirmed if the burned vehicle is the same one used in the carjacking. The Chrysler 300 was spotted heading east through the Vegreville area and later found by police in Saskatchewan.

RCMP believe the suspect or suspects involved are now in Saskatchewan. Police said they are believed to be armed and risky, and should not be approached. He was sent to the Royal Alexandra Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. People are being asked to report any suspicious activity, vehicles or persons in the Maidstone area to police immediately. RCMP said further details on the suspect's description were not available.
