Police: Shooter at University of Alberta might be security guards’ co-worker


 

Edmonton police have issued several warrants for a co-worker of the four security guards who were shot at the University of Alberta on Friday, the Globe and Mail reports. The man wanted in relation to the shooting, which left three dead and a fourth guard fighting for his life, is Travis Brandon Baumgartner, an employee at security firm G4S Canada.

“We sincerely believe Baumgartner is armed, he’s dangerous, and we urge the public to use extreme caution,” Supt. Bob Hassel told the Globe.

Not much is known of Baumgartner for now–other than he’s 21 and believed to be on the run in a dark blue Ford-150 truck, according to the National Post.
