Update: Man charged after Anders shooting

Red Deer RCMP charge Darren Curtis Lagrelle in relation to incident

Red Deer RCMP have arrested a man in the shooting incident in the Anders neighbourhood on Sept. 12th that sent a 23-year-old man to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Darren Curtis Lagrelle, 21-years-old, has been charged with aggravated assault, uttering threats, robbery with weapon and breaking and entering.

At approximately 12:15 p.m. on Sept. 12th, the victim surprised the suspect breaking into the victim’s garage and the two struggled. The suspect was carrying a short-barrel small calibre firearm and a machete, and the victim suffered a non-life-threatening gunshot wound to his back and a number of cuts in the struggle.

RCMP were investigating whether the incident was related to a shooting the afternoon of Sept. 11th in which a victim suffered non-life-threatening injuries after being shot with a small calibre weapon in an alley in downtown Red Deer. It was unclear from that victim’s injuries if the weapon was a BB gun or a small calibre rifle. That suspect was described as possibly Aboriginal, wearing a black hoodie with the hood up.
