Calgary police have charged a man with attempted murder after they say he walked into the district seven office Monday night and turned himself in.

The charges stem from outside a home in Ranchlands in the northwest around 6 p.m. when the suspect blocked a vehicle with a man and woman inside it in the driveway, got out and tried to fire a gun at both of them.

Police say the weapon malfunctioned at which point the couple in the other vehicle fled the scene and went to police.

The man is charged with two counts of attempted murder and two counts of criminal harassment along with seven other charges.

Investigators aren’t releasing the suspect’s name or much more about the case to protect the privacy of the family involved because they say the incident is domestic in nature.
