Police in Calgary say overnight shooting was not a random act of violence

CALGARY - Police in Calgary say they don't believe a overnight shooting in a south-end neighbourhood was a random act of violence.

Officers went to a home in the Parkland area and found a 23-year-old man with a gunshot wound.

He needed surgery in hospital, but is expected to survive.

Police say they think the injured man and the shooter knew each other, though investigators have yet to confirm where the shooting took place.

Parkland is in the city's south bordered on the west by Fish Creek Provincial Park.
