Two Regina males: a 22 year-old and a 15 year-old youth, are facing a charge of Attempt Murder in connection with an incident that occurred on September 9, 2014 in the area of St. John Street and 1st Avenue North.
In the original incident, police were dispatched at about 5:36 p.m. to the area of St. John Street and 1st Avenue North for a report of shots fired and two males running east-bound down the street. It was believed that one male was pursuing the other. At the same time there was information indicating a vehicle accelerating away from the area and police found significant damage to a fence at 1st Avenue North and Ottawa Street, but it was not known, at that time, if these events were related. Investigation led police to a residence in the 400 block of Ottawa Street, but the suspects were not located there. The complex investigation led to the recovery of a firearm at a house in the 500 block of Montreal Street; the recovery of a blue, Chevrolet Impala, which had a bullet hole in the front, passenger side door and the identification of two victims: an 18 year-old male and a 17 year-old female . They were not injured in this incident. Further investigation led to two arrests, on September 12th (different locations) of a 22 year-old male and a 15 year-old male youth.
The youth cannot be named in accordance with the provisions of the Youth Criminal Justice Act. He is facing eight charges in all: two charges of Attempt Murder [239 CC]; two charges of Assault With a Weapon (bearspray) [267(a) CC]; Unauthorized Possession of a Prohibited Weapon (bearspray) [91(2) CC]; Breach of Undertaking [145(3) CC]; and two charges of Fail to Comply [137 YCJA].
