One of the teens injured in a recent Kitchener shooting was allegedly the gunman, say Waterloo Regional Police.
Officers responded to calls about a shooting on Huber Street in Kitchener on Nov. 13 at around 9:30 p.m.
The officers arrived to find a 17-year-old Kitchener boy with a gunshot wound causing serious, but non-life-threatening injuries. He was taken to an out-of-region hospital for treatment.
Police describe the shooting as targetted.
A little while later, police were called after a 16-year-old Kitchener boy visited an area hospital to be treated for a gunshot wound.
Police arrested that teen on Thursday morning, charging him with attempted murder, breach of probation as well as several weapons related offences.
A police spokesperson told Global News they were still investigating to see if the suspect’s gunshot wounds were self-inflicted or if there was another shooter involved.
“It’s an ongoing investigation,” Const. Andre Johnson said in an email.
“Investigators are working to determine the exact circumstances surrounding the incident.”
