Two promising baseball players die in alleged Alberta murder-suicide
Two promising southern Alberta baseball athletes and a female passenger were gunned down in an overnight roadside rampage near Claresholm.
The shooter, apparently driving alone on the dark highway just north of the town early Thursday morning, sprayed bullets at two men and two women travelling together toward Calgary, before turning the weapon on himself.
One woman survived the attack.
The mass killing stunned the rural Alberta town and devastated friends and families of the victims, all in their 20s.
“I don’t know why. That’s a question that everyone’s going to be asking for a long time — is why. There’s probably no answer to that one,” said Todd Hubka, who’d coached Tanner Craswell and Mitch Maclean at Prairie Baseball Academy in Lethbridge, Alta. (Photo courtesy the Guardian)
