Witnesses said around 11:10 p.m. Tuesday that a red Chevrolet Silverado was chasing a gray Volkswagen Jetta on 36th Street SE.

As the occupants fired at each other, the two vehicles collided with two unrelated vehicles at the 17th Avenue intersection.

Angela McKenzie, a 40-year-old mother, was in a silver van when it was hit by the red truck. She was found dead on the spot.

Witness statements originally suggested that two people fled from the red truck after the collision. However, police said a review of CCTV footage has not confirmed a second person.

“We have verified that the truck was stolen and have a description of the prime suspect who fled after the collision,” said Staff Sgt. Sean Gregson of the CPS’s Major Crimes Division said in a press release.

“This suspect is still at large and we encourage anyone with information about their identity or whereabouts to contact the police.”

The suspect is described as a 25- to 30-year-old man of medium build. He was wearing a baseball cap and carrying a laptop-style bag.

Gregson said it is too early to confirm the motivation or connection between those involved in the shooting.

“We continue to investigate and once again want to appeal to members of the community to assist us with our investigation. Even small pieces of information can have a big impact.”

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact police by calling 403-266-1234. Tips can also be passed on anonymously to Crime Stoppers.
