Calgary Police just issued a Canadawide warrant after a young mother was shot and killed in the city.

The warrant has been issued for a man police say was recently in a relationship with the victim. Police believe that the homicide was "domestically-motivated."

Calgary Police were called to the 300 block of Templeview Drive Northeast on April 7 at about 7:15 p.m. after receiving reports of gunshots.

Officers found a woman suffering from a gunshot wound. She was taken to Foothills Hospital in life-threatening condition, where she later died due to her injuries.

The victim was later identified as 23-year-old Jamie Lynn Scheible.

In a statement released on April 12, the Calgary Police confirmed a Canadawide warrant for second-degree murder has been issued for 37-year-old Gerald Russell Frommelt.

“After further investigation, we have determined that the victim and accused were recently in a relationship and we believe this to be a domestically-motivated homicide,” said Staff Sergeant Martin Schiavetta from the Calgary Police's Homicide Unit.

The suspect is described as 6 feet, 2 inches tall and approximately 250 pounds, with black hair and brown eyes.

“This is a tragic death and we are asking the public to help us locate Frommelt to help bring justice to Jamie’s family,” Schiavetta said.

People have paid tribute to Scheible, including her family, who said they were devastated by the loss of their "sweet daughter Jamie."

"She was beautiful, free-spirited, quirky and funny, and always brought a smile to our faces," the family said in a statement.

In a Facebook post, another friend named Katana Gyman said the young mom had "the brightest smile and bubbliest personality."

Anyone with information on Frommelt's whereabouts has been asked to contact the Calgary Police non-emergency number at 403-266-1234. Tips can also be left anonymously through Crime Stoppers.
