The University of Alberta has reopened the building where three armoured car guards were shot and killed during a robbery. A fourth guard was in critical condition in hospital. Police continue to hunt for an armed suspect, who was the fifth guard in the crew tasked with restocking a bank machine at the campus early Friday. Travis Baumgartner's mother has issued a plea asking the 21-year-old to turn himself in. Sandy Baumgartner says she and her son had an argument before he left for his night shift Thursday. A bouquet of flowers has been placed next to the bank machine at the university's mall-residence complex, where three of the guards were discovered bleeding on the floor.One of three armoured car guards shot and killed during the robbery at the U of A aspired to be a police officer. Eddie Rejano was also a competitive target shooter and worked a second job as a gun range officer at the Wild West Shooting Centre at West Edmonton Mall. Co-worker Yanira Sale says Rejano, who was 39, started working for G4S Security in February and loved the job. She says staff at the gun range have started collecting donations for his wife and two young sons. (The Canadian Press, twd)
