LATEST:

FINAL UPDATE @ 9:15 AM, June 9 – EPS have informed us that the suspect in last night’s shooting was Norman radditz, 42 years of age. His body was found in the home that was burnt to the ground.

STORY CONTINUES BELOW

Over 50 shots were fired at 8 officers that were on scene. One officer injured. Cst. Woodall, unfortunately, was killed.


 

@ 12:15 AM – June 9, 2015 – EPS Police Chief’s briefing indicated the following:

8PM, Monday, several officers came under gun fire at a residence in a south-west home in Edmonton. Shots were fired from inside the home. The second officer that was shot in the back is expected to make a full recovery. The officer that passed away worked for the EPS for 8 years. His job was to keep us away from harm. His wife and two children have lost their loved one this evening. Our hearts go out to the fallen officer. Police Chief indicates that “we do not have anyone in custody at this time.” The officers went to the mans home for an arrest warrant.

*Looks like we may have been given false information, as the Chief of Police has specified that they do NOT have anyone in custody at this time. I’m not entirely sure if this means he’s been shot and killed, or if he is still at large. Very vague information being passed around.


 

@ 11:48 PM – No confirmation from EPS if whether or not the house fire and shooting are connected. You are being asked to continue to stay away from the area of Collingwood Road & 184 Street.


@ 11:35 PM – No confirmation of whether or not the house fire and shooting are connected. You are being asked to continue to stay indoors and keep away from the Collingwood area.


@ 11:21 PM – I just want to take a personal moment here to give my greatest condolences to fellow EPS officers, family, and friends of the officer that was shot and killed this very dark evening. I want to also take a moment to thank each and every officer, paramedic, firefighter, and any and all other services that did whatever they could to make this situation as easy-going as possible. Know that we, the people, appreciate you taking these things so seriously. RIP, dear officer. (I will not post any names here, as I am unaware if family has been informed yet.)


@ 11:16 PM – People saying they heard shots fired at roughly 8:30 PM this evening, as many as 20+ shots. Also, the house that was on fire is not salvageable, however, the fire did not spread enough to cause any un-repairable damage to neighboring homes.


@ 11:13 PM – Global News Live available here.


@ 11:05 PM – It’s been said before, and we’ll have it said again. PLEASE don’t share any names floating around. Put yourselves in the shoes of family that may not be notified yet.


@ 11:01 PM – I’m hearing a lot of sirens driving by in the area again.


@ 10:53 PM – GOOD NEWS – Hearing reports that the suspect in the alleged shooting death of a police officer in Edmonton has been shot and killed.


@ 10:23 PM – As far as we know, the scene is still not under control…. Police Chief Rod Knecht will be holding a news conference tonight at midnight.


@ 10:00 PM – It is believed that the shooter is INSIDE the burning house. Shouldn’t be in there for too long, I wouldn’t imagine.


@ 9:56 PM – 🙁 It’s been 25 years since an EPS officer has been killed in the line of duty… Unfortunately, tonight, we lost another one… We are unsure of the officer’s name at this time.


@ 9:50 PM – Protective Services reports: “EPS will update on situation once it is safe and the incident has concluded. Please do not interfere with the active scene.”


@ 9:46 PM – Video of house on fire:https://twitter.com/JKentGlobal/status/608112344959311873


@ 9:34 PM – Cst. Brendan Powers reports: “Situation at 184 Street / 62 Ave still active. Neighbouring residents, remain indoors unless directed to evacuate by Police.”


@ 9:30 PM – Edmonton Fire indicates that there are in fact 25 firefighters on stand-by, waiting for the scene to be clear… How crappy is that? They could put the fire out in any minute… But they can’t because of this gunman. Sad.


@ 9:29 PM – Sources say one Edmonton officer in stable condition in hospital. Suffered non-life threatening gun shot wound.


@ 9:25 PM – House is burning. Flames are growing. Evacuation is in order. “Major risk to surrounding homes as flames grow at Callingwood shooting scene. Evacuations reported.”


@ 9:15 PM – CBC News shows house on fire in Collingwood. I repeat, HOUSE ON FIRE! Tons of smoke in the area. *Again, we urge you to please STAY AWAY*


@ 9:11 PM – Cst. Brendan Power says: “Please stay far away from the area of 184 Street / 62 Ave. You are NOT safe to be observing anywhere near there. Area residents stay indoors.”


@ 9:09 PM – CBC News indicates that shots being exchanged at the Callingwood scene. Smoke being used


@ 9:04 PM – CBC News now stating that police sources have informed them that in fact two officers are involved in the shooting at a home in Collingwood, one member shot in the back, the other is currently unaccounted for. ***GUNMAN IS CURRENTLY AT LARGE. STAY INSIDE.***


@ 9:00 PM – CTV Edmonton reports:

“Apparent shooting of EPS officer 184 St/Callingwood Rd. Dozens of police cars, three ambulances on scene. One ambulance just left.”


@ 8:55 PM – It is being said that an officer was shot in the back, and that it is a possible hostage situation in a West Edmonton church according to witnesses at the scene. EPS has not made any official statements as of yet.


 

@ 8:53 PM – CBC News now stating that police sources have informed them that 2 officers are involved in the shooting at a home in Collingwood, one member shot in the back, the other is currently unaccounted for. GUNMAN IS AT LARGE. STAY INSIDE.

CTV Edmonton reports: “Apparent shooting of EPS officer 184 St/Callingwood Rd. Dozens of police cars, three ambulances on scene. One ambulance just left.”


It is being said that an officer was shot in the back, and that it is a possible hostage situation in a West Edmonton church according to witnesses at the scene. EPS has not made any official statements as of yet.


 

We’re hearing reports of an officer being shot in the Callingwood neighbourhood (West) of Edmonton.

We ask that everyone in the area stays indoors until further notice, as we are not sure if the shooter has been caught or not. (Leaning towards not at the moment).

There are tons of police on scene, and patrolling the area.

Story developing…

By the time I could turn into my block there was 20 police cars on the corner of my subdivision. I just pray that both police officers are ok.

  104. Yes EPS has not confirmed it yet but probably because they are a little preoccupied right now. The midnight news converence will probably have a confirmation in it or why the news converence will be held. However for CBC reporting it they are an honourable news source and would have crediable sources and confirmation in order to be able to print and release it.

Can I also just say I know people become curious and inquisitive but remember these families still need to live their lives and have their children return back to living in a normal neighbourhood. So please PLEASE for the sake of the neighbours and neighbourhood do not spend the next week or two weeks congesting their streets and neighbourhood to do a drive by to look at a burnt down house. They have suffered enough as much as the public was told to stay away tonight respect those still living there and dont be drive by gawkers.

  140. somebody should point out that this neigborhood is not called Callingwood. North of Callingwood road at this intersection is Ormsby and to the south is Dechene or Jamison .. Callingwood is over a kilometer away up beside the Whitemud freeway. Our police deserve our respect. The possibilty of getting killed doing your job is not something most of have to deal with on daily basis.
