A man who phoned 911 seeking to “engage RCMP members in a shootout” is dead after police responding to his Calling Lake home opened fire. The 51-year-old man called 911 multiple times around 11:15 p.m. Saturday asking the Athabasca RCMP to respond to his home, commenting during the calls about seeking a police “shootout,” said Mounties in a Sunday news release.
