The Regina Police Service is asking for help from the public in its investigation into two separate incidents, sometime during the early morning hours of Monday, October 5, 2015, in which empty vehicles were damaged by what appears to be firearms discharge.
Incident #1 – Police were dispatched at about 9:51 a.m., Monday, October 5, 2015, to a house in the 1100 block of Montague Street for a report of a vehicle which appeared to have been damaged by shots. The owner of the vehicle indicated he’d heard what sounded like shots the night before, but didn’t realize, until morning, that his vehicle had been damaged. The sounds of the shots was sometime between 3:00 and 4:00 a.m. An investigator from Forensic Identification attended the scene to gather evidence.
Incident #2 – Police were dispatched to the 300 block of Habkirk Drive, at approximately 10:05 a.m. on Monday, October 5, 2015 for what was initially reported as a possible theft from a vehicle, with the rear window smashed. When police arrived, the owner had done a closer inspection and noticed what he thought might be bullet or pellet holes in the vehicle and some similar holes in the siding of the house. The homeowner did not hear anything overnight, but police were able to obtain additional information that indicates the incident may have happened sometime between 2:00 and 3:00 a.m. A member from the Forensic Identification unit attended to gather evidence.
Police are continuing to investigate both incidents. There is nothing at this time that suggests the two may be related. Anyone with information on either case is asked to contact the Regina Police Service at 306-777-6500 or call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477. The Regina Police Service also encourages residents to call 306-777-6500 when they see or hear suspicious activity. In an emergency or a crime in progress, call 9-1-1.
