Homicide unit investigating death at scene of robbery in Forest Heights

A person was killed during a robbery in Edmonton's Forest Heights neighbourhood Monday morning.

The robbery near 76 Street and 105 Avenue was reported at 5 a.m.

Police found a hurt male, whose age was not released by police, at the home.

They and paramedics tried to treat him, but he died on scene.

Investigators are calling the death suspicious and the homicide unit is leading the case.

A resident told CTV News Edmonton he heard a loud bang around that time.

"Last night I couldn't sleep because it was pretty hot," Jed said. "I was awake probably most of the night and hear maybe at 3, 4, 5 in the morning, a loud bang which very well could have been a loud car backfiring."

Detectives are looking for dash cam or security footage from the area between 4:45 a.m. and 5:15 a.m. Anyone with information can call EPS or Crime Stoppers. Top Stories
