MILK RIVER: A continuing investigation by RCMP has resulted in a Canada wide warrant
issued for a suspect in the December 28th shooting in Warner.
Early last Saturday morning, multiple gunshots were fired into an occupied
residence. Fortunately no one was injured. At the time, police indicated the shooting was not believed to be a random incident.
An investigation assisted by the Lethbridge RCMP Forensic Identification Section and the Calgary RCMP General Investigation unit, determined that Kenneth Barry WALLAGE used a shotgun to fire slugs into a trailer, aiming
at a bed and narrowly missing two sleeping occupants. WALLAGE is now charged
with two counts of attempted murder.
On January 1st, it's believed WALLAGE stole a 2004 Black Dodge 1500
truck with Alberta licence plate RUJ-371. The truck is a four door, four wheel
drive half ton. It has a black grill, is missing the driver's side mirror and
has chrome strips along the bottom of the body.
Police caution that Wallage should be considered armed and dangerous, as
he is in possession of a 12 gauge pump action shot gun.
The public is advised not to approach Wallage or the truck but to call the
local Police Department.
The matter remains under investigation, and anyone with any information on
this or any other crime is asked to call the Milk River RCMP at 403-647-2427 or Crime Stoppers.
The truck pictured below, is similar to the vehicle stolen by Wallage.
