Red Deer, Alberta – Red Deer RCMP are looking for public assistance to identify the man who fired two rounds into the ceiling of the Hybrid Lounge while robbing it at 9 pm Sunday night.
RCMP were called to the Hybrid Lounge (formerly Post Time Lounge) located at 3731 50 Avenue at 9:10 pm on June 26 after a man entered the lounge brandishing a long barrel gun. He fired into the ceiling, demanded money, and ordered staff and customers to get on the floor. He then fired into the ceiling a second time before fleeing through the back door carrying the till. The suspect had been dropped off at the front door by a white 2015 Dodge Ram that picked him up again in the parking lot of Checkmate Court and drove away heading east. The truck had been reported stolen out of Red Deer on June 20.
There were a number of customers in the lounge at the time, but no one was injured during the robbery.
