On July 26, Waterloo Regional Police were called to Kinzie Avenue near Thaler Avenue for reports of gunfire.

There were no reports of any injuries but police did find evidence of gunfire during their investigation.

Just two days later, police were called to Ingleside Drive at around 2:40 p.m. for reports of gunfire.

Police said two men were taken to hospital afterwards, one with gunshot wounds.

On Thursday, police set the scene, saying two men were in a parked car when they were approached by the two suspects. An altercation then ensued where a gun was fired and two men allegedly took off in a stolen vehicle.

The stolen vehicle is then alleged to have struck a cruiser before the two suspects left on foot.

One was quickly tracked down while the other was found in a nearby park a short time later.
