As the weather become nicer in our City, excitement for friendly gatherings and socializing increases daily. There’s nothing better than spending an evening with friends or family, especially if you have something to celebrate! This month’s article will focus on a friendly gathering that took a turn for the worse. As always, if you know something about this incident please report it to the Police or Crime Stoppers.

Approximately one year ago – March 25th, 2022 to be exact – a resident of Margaret Street decided to hold a small gathering to celebrate a recent achievement. During the night, there came an unexpected knock at the door. The home owner opened the door and was greeted by two men, both of whom were unknown to them and who were definitely not invited to the gathering. The men engaged in discussion with the homeowner, however it was decided that they would not be allowed entry into the home. The door was eventually shut and the men were left on the front steps with the order to leave.

It was at this point that the night went sideways. One of the men produced a silver handgun from his person and blindly fired rounds into the door. They then left the residence in a white Dodge pick-up truck. Chaos erupted inside the house. The gunshots sent loud bangs throughout the household. People panicked, especially when they learned that one of the bullets had struck one of their peers. This person was taken to hospital, fortunately with non-life-threatening injuries.

Suspect #1 is described as a white male – 5’9” in height, late 20’s or early 30’s, wearing a baseball hat, light-coloured jeans, and a dark sweater.

Suspect #2 is described as a light skin male, tall and thin build, wearing a red sweater and dark jeans.

Police are still investigating this incident.
