Edmonton police are investigating after attending an incident following reports the family-related disturbance was being livestreamed online. When police arrived, they found two people injured, one of whom died at the scene.
At approximately 7:30 p.m.on Saturday night, officers responded to reports of a family-related disturbance being livestreamed at an apartment complex in the city’s Westmount neighbourhood.
They arrived to find two men injured.
A 20-year-old man died from his injuries at the scene, and the other man was taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
The area in and around the apartment complex was cordoned off. Homicide detectives were on scene and armed officers quickly flooded the area, questioning neighbours about what they saw and heard.
Those who live in the area say the incident comes as a shock.
“We’ve never had an issue in this neighbourhood,” Alechia, a neighbour, told CTV Edmonton, adding that “it’s a little nerve wracking.”
