Police in Edmonton have identified the injured guard in the university mall shooting as Matthew Schuman, a full-time corporal and Air Force firefighter stationed at Canadian Forces Base Edmonton.
They say Schuman had a second job at G4S Security. Three of his colleagues were killed in what police are calling a botched robbery attempt by one of their own at the University of Alberta’s Hub Mall. Officials at the mall say it is “fully operational” this weekend but retailers have the option to open up or not.
Police believe that the suspect, Travis Baumgartner, has switched the license plate on the Ford truck he is driving. The new plate number is: CAA 636.
Police are still hunting a man they believe is a “dangerous” killer. Travis Baumgartner was still at large after the shooting, which happened in the wee hours of Friday morning as he and his security crew were re-stocking a bank machine on the ground floor of one of the school’s residences, which also has shops on the main floor.
While police are calling what happened an armed robbery, there has been no confirmation that any money was taken. An abandoned armoured car was later found halfway across town near a G4S office with its lights on and its motor running.
The 21-year-old Baumgartner is being sought on warrants for three counts of first-degree murder and one of attempted murder.
Late Friday night, Schuman was still fighting for his life in an Edmonton hospital with critical injuries.
Baumgartner’s mother made a plea to her son late Friday to turn himself in. She alluded to a fight the two had before the shooting and apologized to her son.
“I’m sorry that we had an argument last night and that we had bad words between us, but I want you to come home and do the right thing. Let’s work this out together,” she said in a statement read by police.
Friends say Baumgartner had designs on being a police officer, but settled into a job with G4S instead after deciding he didn’t have what it takes for law enforcement.
He likes video games and calls himself a recreational drug user. In an online dating profile, he says he is a “great guy” who is laid back and has a “10” physique.
But his Facebook page is much darker, quoting the anarchist Joker from the movieDark Knight and musing about “popping people off.”
Police have also released some details about the people Baumgartner allegedly killed.
Michelle Shegelski was 26 and had just gotten married to her husband, Victor, a former military man who, coincidentally, had just returned to school at the University of Alberta. Eddie Rejano, 39, and Brian Ilesic, 35, were the other two guards killed.
