A shooting in St.Paul has left one man in hospital, after being shot in the chest during the night of June 30, 2016.
According to a police news release, the St.Paul RCMP were dispatched to a report of shots fired in the area of 46 Avenue and 48 Street, following the town’s Canada Day fireworks display. Police said their investigation revealed there had been a confrontation between two groups before a single gunshot was fired. The victim was transported to hospital in stable condition, while the suspects in the shooting fled on foot.
The St. Paul RCMP believes that the parties were known to each other and said the incident does not appear to have been a random act.
In the wake of the incident, an arrest warrant has been issued for 32 year old Lionel Cory Steinhauer of Saddle Lake, Alberta, for charges of attempted murder, aggravated assault, assault, possession of a firearm while prohibited, and failure to comply with conditions of release. Several other individuals are being sought by police for questioning.
Steinhauer is described as an Aboriginal male with short black hair and a pockmarked face, standing around 5’9, with a husky build. He also has tattoos of a bear claw on his upper left arm and “LIONZ” on his right forearm.
The public are being asked to report any sightings or knowledge of Steinhauer’s whereabouts to the St. Paul RCMP at 780-645-8888 or report it online at www.tipsubmit.com. Steinhauer is to be considered armed and dangerous and is not to be approached.
