Two men are being sought on warrants for attempted murder in relation to a bomb attack in the city’s northeast over the weekend.
At least one of the suspects has been linked to the Aryan Guard in Calgary, and has identified himself as a member of the white supremacist group to media in the past. He is known to police.
While police won’t confirm his membership in the group, they say the victims “share the same values and beliefs” and believe it was a targeted attack.
“We’re very interested in locating both (suspects) because we believe that there is danger to the victims and possibly to others,” Insp. Keith Cain said.
Police confirmed two improvised explosive devices left outside an apartment unit could have killed the intended targets.
Anti-Racist Calgary spokesperson Bonnie Devine spoke out against the bomb attack, as well as the recent rash of anti-Semitic graffiti in the city, and hopes police take a more pro-active approach.
“We believe a lot of these attacks are linked, and we want the police to start seeing it that way, too,” Devine said.
Kyle McKee, 24, and a 17-year-old unidentified male are being sought.
