The Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) said four men were shot yesterday afternoon at a Muslim cemetery just outside of Calgary, the Big News Network website reports today (March 12, 2016).
Sgt. Jack Poitras said the shooting happened near Cochrane and the injured people were being treated at Calgary hospitals. A police spokesperson at the scene said all suffered non-life-threatening injuries.
Police said there was a funeral for a Pakistani native at the cemetery and a group of people remained at the site following the service. Poitras said it appears the shooting involved people who were in the group.
Calgary Imam Syed Soharwardy said he spoke with two people who attended the funeral and they suspect the shooting was gang-related.
