Police are investigating after two people were shot in Calgary Saturday.

Calgary Police Staff Sgt. John Guigon says a woman and a man were shot outside the after-hours club Chip City, located at 6520 36 Street N.E.

He says the call came in around 6 a.m.

A man was shot at least four times; a woman was shot once in the abdomen and taken to Foothills Hospital by her friends, Guigon said.

Both victims have undergone surgery and are now recovering, Guigon said. The man, who was in life-threatening condition when he was taken to hospital, has "life-altering injuries."

Guigon says witnesses indicated as many as a dozen shots were fired.

He also says the two victims did not know each other.

No ages have been released but both were adults.

Police are interviewing witnesses — Guigon said there were dozens of people in the area — and processing the scene.
