RCMP were kept busy, and asking for the public's assistance, after two random acts of gunfire - one accidental and one possibly criminal - erupted in southern Alberta.

An employee was present at a Walsh, Alta. business when bullets cut through the building early Monday, police said, adding the worker was unharmed.

Witnesses reported seeing two men shooting a semi-automatic rifle at the business, and an older model Chevrolet pickup truck at the scene, RCMP said.

Police are asking anyone with information regarding the shooting to contact Redcliff RCMP or Crime Stoppers.

Meanwhile, there will be no charges against a man who accidentally shot a bullet through the roof of a house near Lethbridge.

Police have determined the stray bullet came from a fish and game range near the city, where two men were target shooting with pistols last month.

The bullet cleared the safety berm when one of the men inadvertently fired the pistol while the barrel was pointed upwards.

Officers were called to a north-side home where the residents heard a bang, found a hole in their ceiling and a bullet on the floor.

No one was injured.

Police say the men at the range co-operated completely and the man's actions have been deemed non-criminal.
