UPDATE: Ponoka man dead, 2 Lacombe residents in LPS custody after report of gunshot wound

Suspects were located by the Sylvan Lake RCMP and arrested after a short foot pursuit

The Lacombe Police Service responded to reports of a gunshot wound that resulted in a male dying of his injuries.

Early in the morning of Dec. 15, 2019 the Lacombe Police Service responded to the Lacombe Hospital after a 20-year-old male had been admitted to the hospital with a gun shot wound.

The male who was identified as Jeffrey Kraft from Ponoka died from his injuries. An autopsy is scheduled for Dec. 17, 2019 at the Calgary M.E.’s office.

Further investigation into the incident determined the victim had met with a female and male acquaintance earlier and while driving in the area of north east Lacombe, a confrontation occurred.

A firearm was presented by the male suspect. During the confrontation, the firearm was discharged, causing the injuries to the victim. After the incident, the victim was driven to the hospital and left in their care. The female and male suspects then fled.

Police were able to identify the suspects as: Tyler John Campbell, 27, from Lacombe and Amie Rogers, 21, also of Lacombe.

After Lacombe Police sent out a bulletin to other Police agencies, the suspects were located by the Sylvan Lake RCMP and arrested after a short foot pursuit.

Both suspects have been charged in relation to the homicide. They are being held in custody until their first court appearance on December 20th, 2019 in Red Deer. At this time a publication ban has been ordered in relation to any evidence related to the investigation.
