Calgary police have identified the victim in a homicide case under investigation as a convicted Winnipeg killer.
Late Wednesday night, Calgary police officers were called to a home where they found a deceased man outside the residence.
Residents in the area said they were woken up by a number of gunshots and startled by the large police presence.
Police have identified the victim as Joel Gary Geddes, 31, a Winnipeg man with an extensive criminal history.
Geddes was convicted of manslaughter in the fatal baseball-bat beating of 18-year-old Morgan Trudeau in Winnipeg in 2003.
Police add there is no evidence to indicate that it was a random attack and they are still working out a possible motive in the killing.
