An investigation into a fight involving a man with a weapon at a CTrain station resulted an on-duty CPS member being slashed with a large bladed weapon and the suspect suffering from a gunshot wound.

Acting Calgary Police Service Chief Trevor Daroux says police responded to the area shortly after 2:00 p.m. following reports of a fight on the nearby LRT platform where a suspect was seen assaulting people with a weapon.

“A single vehicle officer was circulating and he saw an individual behind the dumpster that matched the description of the individual that was involved in the fight earlier on,” said Daroux. “The officer verbally engaged the suspect who then fled.”

CPS units and EMS vehicles outside of a Marlborough Mall entrance on Saturday afternoon following a suspected stabbing.  

Daroux says a foot chase ensued into Marlborough Mall.

“The offender turned to engage the officer at which time the officer engage deployed his Taser, however, it proved ineffective,” explained Daroux. “A physical struggle then ensued when the man produced a large bladed weapon and severely injured our officer.”

“The officer responded by discharging his firearm.”

EMS confirms two people were transported from the mall by ambulance at approximately 2:15 p.m. including a person suffering from a gunshot wound who was in critical, life threatening condition. The second patient, the Calgary Police Service member, was in stable condition with soft tissue injuries.

The suspect’s condition has since been upgraded to stable.

“The officer showed extreme courage and restraint and we’re very fortunate that it wasn’t more serious than it is and they are serious injuries”

The Alberta Serious incident Response Team (ASIRT) has been notified of the incident and has launched an investigation.

Daroux confirms the unnamed suspect is known to police.

Police tape restricted access to the Kal Tire location at the mall and store officials released the following statement to CTV:

We are aware of a police incident that occurred this afternoon on the Marlborough Mall property in Calgary. Although the incident did not involve Kal Tire or it’s team members, the investigation of this incident required the closure of our Kal Tire location which is located on the mall property. The incident is under investigation by local police and we’re therefore not in a position to comment further at this time.

Witness reports indicate as many as 20 CPS units responded to the mall and police on horseback were deployed to assist with crowd control.

    • Hey Kimmy….

      Stop huffing your own farts…methane kills brain cells!

      Name one muslim attacker who has used a machete in CANADA! Don’t read that well do you? Did you even read the article? QUOTE…” the man produced a large bladed weapon..” Bet you aren’t even in CANADA! Jihadi attackers in CANADA have used guns as their weapon of choice not a large knife!!

      BTW…..stores don’t sell machetes in CANADA! They are illegal! Hunting knives only go up to 14 inches in CANADA but you can’t carry one around. A classic size Bowie Knife is illegal in Canada to carry on the street. You can own one, you can use one when you are camping, hunting or fishing! There are laws in CANADA concerning what types of knives and the size that can be carried on your person and they have to be on full display.

      So….you can now go back to your little troll hovel and wipe the crap from your mouth that you just spewed at me!

      • Blessed B, Machetes are not illegal in Canada, you can buy one at almost any sporting goods store. You can buy one at Cabelas for less than $40. You can legally carry any knife as long as it is a legal knife and is not intended to be used as a weapon.

      • Andy…..

        The ones you can buy at a sporting goods store are not really machetes…they are lighter in weight. I though have never seen any machetes in the stores that I frequent in Southern Alberta……

        The point though I was trying to make is….one can not LEGALLY carry a knife, if it is longer than what is allowed….. in some jurisdictions that would be more than 4-6 inches in length, and it can not be concealed. There is no good reason for someone to be carrying around a machete in Calgary, Alberta! Yes…big cities are a jungle but I have never seen any vines or thick brush that needed to be chopped out of the way in Calgary!

        BTW…..what is your interpretation of ” A legal knife” ? Are you saying that any knife is legal to carry in Canada as long as it isn’t intended to do harm with it?

        Criminal Code, relevant quotations:

        Prohibited Weapons

        (a) he causes it under reasonable apprehension of death or grievous bodily harm from the violence with which the assault was originally made or with which the assailant pursues his purposes; and
        (b) he believes, on reasonable grounds, that he cannot otherwise preserve himself from death or grievous bodily harm.

      • The law is based entirely on intent of purpose of the knife. There is no size limit for knives that can be carried, even concealed. This means if you are carrying a knife (even if it is only 1 inch long) for the purpose of self defence it is illegal. If you are carrying a machete in a shopping mall it will be considered a weapon by any LEO since there is nothing to chop other than people. Yes, we have “true” machetes in Canada, a machete is not classified by weight. That is kind of like saying a hammer isn’t a hammer because it isn’t a sledge hammer. Did you know there are different types of machetes? Heavy machetes are intended for heavy chopping e.g wood, thick branches. Light machetes are intended for grass and light branches.

      • And yes there is such a thing as an illegal knife. Switchblades and butterfly knives are examples of knives that are prohibited in Canada. However, they are not prohibited because of their deadliness towards others, they are prohibited because people were severely cutting themselves with these types of knives. Just imagine a switchblade accidentally opening in your pocket

        You said… There is no size limit for knives that can be carried, even concealed.

        There is and there isn’t …..different jurisdictions have different by-laws….the city I reside in says that a knife can only have a blade to a maximum length of 6 inches and it can not be concealed.

        Yes….I know there are different weights of machetes. I don’t think though that many Canadians would need a heavier one….. an axe would do just fine for chopping wood.

        You said…And yes there is such a thing as an illegal knife. Switchblades and butterfly knives are examples of knives that are prohibited in Canada.

        Did you not read the Criminal Code I posted under Prohibited Weapons…..

        (a) a knife that has a blade that opens automatically by gravity or centrifugal force or by hand pressure applied to a button, spring or other device in or attached to the handle of the knife.

        Yes…..carrying a Machete around would have the LEO’s considering it a weapon to do harm…..but then so would a very large knife.

        A large bladed weapon does not necessarily mean a machete…..It could have been a large butchering knife or hunting knife. The report above doesn’t really specify what type of large bladed weapon it was.

      • I don’t really care what your bylaw says, you were referring to CANADA and posted CANADIAN Law. You said machetes were illegal and couldn’t be purchased in CANADA. You said I thought all knives were legal, I do not think that. Your original post was all uneducated lies, I refuted each
        one.

      • Andy…..

        If you live in Canada…you should be worried about the by-laws in different cities…those will be the ones that you will need to follow concerning weapons….I didn’t post the by-laws cuz it would have taken up too much space to cover ALL of CANADA!

        Machetes are illegal to be carrying around in the open in a city! The Police would be called in a heart beat and you better have a VERY good reason to be doing so!

        I have never been in a Canadian Tire store or a Hard ware store where the machetes have been on display to purchase. Which tells me that perhaps in only some stores are they readily available. We don’t have a Cabelas where I live and I haven’t seen one in BC either. Canada is a very big country and what is in one area of the country does not necessarily mean that another area has the same. What Province do you live in? Have you been to every village, town and city in Canada? If you have been then you would know this already.

        I did not say that you said that all knives are legal to carry…..your comment of “You can legally CARRY ANY KNIFE as long as IT IS A LEGAL KNIFE and is not intended to be used as a weapon.” I asked for clarification on that. If you did not think that then why did you say it and why are you now arguing with me?

        My original post was not all lies…..you just interpreted it to be so. I suspect that you are one of those types who love to argue. So be it….. go ahead and argue if it makes you feel superior……

        BTW…..my first comment here was not in reply to you…..you just decided to jump in and defend Kimmy…..must be a buddy of yours!

  1. I have my doubts as to this being a muslim attack…..first off, no witness has said that aloha snackbar was being yelled, which is one of the main characteristics of a muslim attack. (2)….jihadi attacks usually use guns in Canada, not large knives. (3)…..the Canadian terrorist authorities were not called in to investigate the altercation or attack.

    This could have been an individual from another ethnic group…..First Nation aboriginal, Caucasian, Chinese….. African or from the BLM idiots in Canada. These ethnic groups also have their bad apples who do criminal activities.
