The suspect allegedly involved in an armed robbery at the West Park Fas Gas last week that left a clerk shot in the hand and face, made his first court appearance on Monday.

RCMP said at 11:20 p.m. on Sept. 11 a lone male entered the gas station, walked up to the clerk at the counter and produced a sawed-off shotgun.

When the clerk placed the money on the counter the suspect discharged the shotgun. The victim was hit in the hand and face and continues to recover in a Calgary hospital.

The suspect was last seen fleeing westbound on Cronquist Dr. on a bicycle.

He turned himself into Blackfalds police on Sept. 13.

Jeffrey Lyle Geary, 30, of no fixed address in Red Deer has been charged with attempted murder, robbery with a prohibited firearm, possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose, possession of a loaded prohibited firearm and possession of a stolen prohibited firearm.

Geary was remanded into custody and will appear in Red Deer Provincial Court on Sept. 25.

Other news sources have identified the victim as Jaysen Arancon Reyes, 26. He moved to Canada from the Philippines this past spring.
