Canada-wide warrant have now been issued for a Calgary man after a woman was shot three times in what investigators say was a domestic incident.
Duty Insp. Jim Leung said around 1 a.m., police were called to a home in the 700 block of Martindale Blvd. N.E. where a woman allegedly ran from her home and was shot in the front yard.
“The report indicated that a female victim, who was 58 years old, ran out and alerted neighbours that she had been shot three times,” said Leung, adding the victim was suffering one shot to her stomach and two shots to her legs.
She was transported to hospital where she underwent surgery and is currently listed as stable, according to Leung.
He said the incident stems from a domestic incident situation where her estranged husband allegedly entered her home and confronted her.
Nihad Abdullah Ibrahim, 52, of Calgary, is being sought by police in connection with the shooting.
Leung said the Ibrahim had been charged on Aug. 7 with a domestic-related incident and was ordered to have no contact with the alleged victim; however, he was arrested on Aug. 12 after entering the victim’s home.
Ibrahim is facing an attempted murder charge, aggravated assault, assault with a weapon, and nine other related offenses.
As of Monday afternoon, Leung said police were searching the communities of Temple, Whitehorn and Saddleridge for Ibrahim, who may be driving a 2002 silver Chevy Cavalier.
Ibrahim and the alleged victim were together in a common-law relationship for six years, according to police.
