The Wetaskiwin RCMP is asking for the public’s assistance to aid their ongoing investigation into an incident in which a firearm was discharged with intent in a rural area outside of Millet, Alta.
On Aug. 18, 2021, at approximately 9 p.m., police received a report of two suspicious vehicles in Millet. The first suspect vehicle is described as a 2003, white Ford F350. This vehicle has since been recovered and was determined to have been stolen.
The driver of the white F350 was described as a Caucasian female with curly shoulder length light blond hair. She is believed to be between 20 and 30-years-old.
The second suspect vehicle is described as a black Ford F350 with a lout steel-tip after-market exhaust and chrome rear door handles. This vehicle remains outstanding. The driver of this truck was described as a skinny, balding, Caucasian man with short dark hair, a scruffy beard and average height.
The male driver of the black F350 shot at a witness who had attempted to stop the suspect vehicles. This caused damage to the victim’s vehicle, however they were not injured.
A police pursuit was initiated but was ultimately terminated.
