SASKATOON – A man who led police on a wild chase through the streets of Saskatoon in June is facing more charges.

Timothy Gunn, 25, led police on the hour-long chase during the evening rush hour on June 25 that left a path of destruction, damaging four police cruisers and multiple private vehicles.

At least two shots were fired at the stolen truck driven by Gunn during the chase after he allegedly drove at a police officer.

Gunn is now facing charges of aggravated assault of a peace officer and two counts of possession of stolen property.

He was already facing 15 charges stemming from the chase including dangerous operation of a motor vehicle and assault with a weapon for ramming the police cruisers.

Gunn, who has a lengthy criminal record, was wanted by Lloydminster RCMP for an armed robbery at a hotel parking lot on June 11.

Mounties said the robbery was not a random event and was tied to the drug trade.
