The HRP/RCMP Integrated Major Crime Unit is looking for the public’s
assistance in relation to the shooting that took place yesterday in
At 10:50 p.m., police responded to Uniacke Street for a report of
multiple shots fired. On arrival, officers were confronted by an hostile
crowd of upwards of 50 people who had gathered in the area. Due to the
level of aggression directed towards officers, multiple units were
dispatched to the area to gain control of the situation. As a result,
three women were arrested for breach of the peace and a Conducted Energy
Weapon (CEW) was deployed to gain control of one of the women. All three
were later released from police custody.
A short time after the initial call, a 23-year-old man attended
hospital with gunshot wounds. He later underwent surgery for non-life
threatening injuries. The investigation is in its early stages.
Investigators with the HRP/RCMP Integrated Major Crime Unit are urging
anyone who was in the area and may have information about the incident
