Woman dead following potential shooting in northeast Calgary


One woman is dead after an incident in a northeast Calgary community early Thursday evening.

EMS says the woman was believed to be in her 20s.

Police responded to reports of gunshots at around 7:15 pm in the 300 block of Templeview NE to find a woman unconscious and in medical distress with what appeared to be a gunshot wound.

The woman was transported to the Foothills Medical Center in a life-threatening condition, but she was later pronounced dead in hospital.
