A 37-year-old man is facing multiple firearms charges and police are looking for three additional suspects in a shooting that took place in northeast Calgary last week.
On Nov. 17, police said a group of four men were involved in a physical altercation in the upper level of the Marlborough CTrain station, at 899 36 Street NE
Officers said the violence escalated when the suspects pulled out a pipe and a knife. Members of the public tried to flee the area, but a few minutes later one of the suspects returned to the upper level and fired a flare gun twice “causing one of the other suspects’ jackets to ‘ caught fire for a short time.”
The man who fired the flare gun fled the area on a departing CTrain and was taken into custody by police at the Franklin CTrain station without incident. He is now facing multiple charges.
Evan Robert Mossing (37) was charged with seven firearms offences, including discharging a firearm with intent while being reckless, careless use of a firearm and possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose.
The other three suspects fled the area, and the police are now asking for the public’s help in identifying them.
The first suspect is described as 20- to 30-years-old, five-foot-eight inches tall, with a slim build, black hair, brown eyes and a pierced left ear. Police said he was wearing a light green winter jacket, a black Toronto Raptors jersey, blue jeans, black/tan winter boots, a black baseball hat and sunglasses.
The second suspect is described as 20- to 30-years-old, six feet tall, with a thin build and brown or black hair. He was wearing a green camo jacket with fur around the hood, a white hoodie, a green reflective jacket, dark pants and black shoes.

“This display of violence took place in a busy public area, was extremely reckless and will not be tolerated,” said A/Staff Sgt. Shelby Stewart with the Calgary Police Service. “Calgarians deserve to feel safe as they move around the city and we continue to work with our partners, including Calgary Transit, to address this type of ongoing violence.”
