We need anyone to come forward who may have seen anything out of the ordinary leading up to the shooting or after it occurred” said Insp Kevin O’Blenis, Integrated Criminal Division. “Those involved had a complete disregard for the safety of the public in this neighbourhood. Investigators have found a bullet on a living room couch in one home, and in another a bullet went into the home and was found in a closet.”
