Fear lingers after Rundle bar killing

Business owners and managers near the scene of a fatal shooting in Rundle on the weekend are still on edge.

Business owners and managers near the scene of a fatal shooting in Rundle on the weekend are still on edge.

Police say Dexter Stanley Stephen Bain, a 36-year-old bartender, was shot and killed while closing up Our Place Pub and Grill at 3709–26th Ave. NE around 3 a.m. Saturday.

Eyewitnesses spotted three men leaving the bar moments afterwards.

Lily Ho, manager of a drycleaner and laundromat next door, said she was “terrified” after learning about the shooting.

“You hear about crime elsewhere, but this happened right next door,” said Ho, who has worked at the location for more than six years.

Owners of a nearby liquor store and convenience store, who both asked to have their names withheld, said business has decreased since the shooting.

Ho said her business has not taken much of a hit, but customers have certainly expressed fears about their safety.

Calgary police spokesperson Kevin Brookwell said investigators have “a lot of questions.” A motive for the killing has yet to be determined.
