Regina police locate second suspect after two homes shot at in North Central
Regina police have arrested a 15-year-old boy, the second suspect connected to shootings that were targeted at two separate homes in Regina in the early hours of March 11.
At roughly 3:35 a.m. on March 11, police were dispatched to two homes in Regina’s North Central neighbourhood after two separate incidents of guns being shot at a home in the 1300 block of Athol Street, and a home in the 1500 block of Cameron Street.
In both cases, police immediately checked the area but were unable to locate any suspects. No one was hurt in either of these incidents.
At the same time, police did find damage to a number of vehicles in the area, and after further investigation was led to two potential suspects.
The first suspect, a 16-year-old boy, was taken into custody without incident a short time later and was charged with possession of a firearm, two counts of mischief under $5,000, in addition to other charges, and made his first appearance on these charges in youth court at 9:30 a.m. on March 12.
On March 22 at about 5 p.m., a police officer spotted a male in the 3100 block of Dewdney Avenue who was known to be the subject of multiple outstanding warrants, including charges involving the discharge of firearms.
A canine team was used to track the suspect into a house in the 1500 block of Garnet after he ran from police, which is where he was taken into custody without incident.
The 15-year-old boy, who cannot be named due to his age, is facing numerous charges, including eleven charges of mischief under $5,000, and possession of a firearm.
He will appear in youth court on these charges on March 23 at 2:00 p.m.
