A 34-year-old man has now been charged with attempted murder in relation to an event in Devon in August.

On August 18th, a single gunshot was fired at a vehicle which was parked at a gas station. It was around 2:30 a.m. when a blue Toyota Tundra was driving by the stopped vehicle when a male allegedly pointed a firearm and shot one round at the vehicle before fleeing. RCMP later found the vehicle abandoned on Highway 60 and it was later determined stolen. Nobody was injured in the incident.

After a lengthy investigation, the Edmonton Serious Crimes Branch - General Investigation Section charged George Daniel Siemens attempted murder in relation to the incident.

At the time he was charged, Siemens was already in custody at the Edmonton Remand Centre when the GIS unit effected his arrest on January 17th. Siemens had been at the Remand Centre since October 30, 2017, for an unrelated offence.

At the time of his arrest, Siemens was wanted on several warrants across central Alberta. He had seven charges in Fort Saskatchewan, five in Westlock, four in Whitecourt, six in Camrose and two in Vermillion all relating to break and enters, including theft and possession of stolen property.
