Leduc RCMP make arrest following gun shot complaint

A Good Samaritan who helped a woman in distress ended up having a gun fired in his vicinity, stated Leduc RCMP in a press release May 25.

According to Cst. Guillaume Lamoureux, Leduc RCMP Detachment General Investigation Section, “On May 23, following complaints of a gun shot fired, the RCMP in Leduc located, pursued, arrested and charged a male suspect.

“At 3:22 p.m. a 911 call was received that two males were arguing on a rural road and a gun shot was fired.

“The unfolding incident began when the suspect male assaulted a female. The female victim ran and sought assistance from an uninvolved motorist.

“The male driver of the assisting motorist confronted the suspect male who then pointed his gun at this driver, and fired a shot into the air. The male suspect smashed the vehicle’s passenger side window and made efforts to remove the female from the vehicle.

“The RCMP responded and located the suspect male who fled in his vehicle. A short pursuit ensued into an open field where the suspect was arrested. As a result of a search of the suspect’s vehicle, a 9 mm handgun was seized.

“The 21-year-old female victim was not seriously injured during this incident.”

Cst, Lamoureaux stated one man has been arrested and charged in relation to this incident.

“Twenty-one-year-old Abduarrhman Abuoun has been charged with assault, mischief under $5,000, pointing a firearm at a person, careless use of a firearm, and three other firearms related offences,” stated Lamoureaux. “He remains in custody, and is scheduled to appear in court in Leduc on Monday May 28, 2018.”
