Two Males in Custody Following High Risk Incident

On January 21st 2021 at about 4:50 PM members of the Medicine Hat Police Service Patrol Section responded to a multi-vehicle collision that had occurred on 11 Street SE at 4th Avenue SE.

Prior to police arrival, the primary offending vehicle had fled the scene prior with considerable damage and was later located abandoned within the city.

Investigators received information that the vehicle was stolen during a robbery with a firearm that had occurred in Calgary earlier that day, by two unknown males who were believed to be armed and dangerous. The subsequent investigation led police to locate the two suspects in a suite of a duplex located on Southlands Boulevard SE.

Police containment was established on the residence and after several hours the incident was safely resolved with assistance from the MHPS Tactical Team. Two male suspects are presently in custody as MHPS Major Crimes continues the investigation.

After the investigation is complete further information will be provided.
