The Calgary Police Service has charged two people in relation to a shooting that occurred in September of 2008.
 
At approximately 8:25 a.m., on Sunday, Sept. 14, 2008, a man in his 40s was driving in the 100 block of Scenic Acres Road N.W., in order to give a ride to family friend.
 
As the man exited his vehicle, he was shot by an occupant of another vehicle as it pulled up beside him.
 
The victim began to call for help, and was able to stagger to a nearby home where a resident called 911. He was transported to a local hospital with life-threatening injuries. The victim’s condition later stabilized and he eventually recovered from his injuries.
 
It was believed at least two people were in the offending vehicle.
 
In the investigation that followed, officers worked with partner agencies, including the Burnaby RCMP. However, charges were not able to be laid at the time, based on the evidence gathered.
 
In March 2013, the structure of the new CPS Centralized General Investigations Section enabled additional resources to be assigned to the file
 
As a result of the investigation, Calgary Police Service officers arrested one man in Langley, B.C. on Sunday, June 23, 2013, with the assistance of Vancouver Police Department members.
 
A short time later, another man was arrested in Surrey, B.C., with the assistance of the Surrey RCMP.
 
The men were transported back to Calgary.
 
Nicholas Orestus Paul Anastassiades, 44, of Surrey, B.C., and Devan Kayle Rene Cunliffe, 27, of Vancouver, B.C., have been charged with one count each of attempted murder.
 
It was determined that this incident was not related to drugs or organized crime. The victim and one of the accused were known to each other through a civil matter.
