The Regina Police Service is asking for information from the public to assist in an investigation into possible shots fired in the area of the 2300 block of Broad Street in the early morning hours of Tuesday, April 19th (today).
At approximately 2:37 a.m., on Tuesday, April 19, 2016, police were dispatched to the 2300 block of Broad Street after receiving a call from a citizen who said he’d heard what sounded like shots and then a vehicle accelerating out of the area. The caller did not see the vehicle or the suspect or a firearm. Police at the scene last night and investigators, following up today, believe they have evidence to indicate the event DID involve shots fired. There was an extensive physical search of the area carried out today; at this time, it is not known if anything was struck by a projectile. Officers also carried out neighbourhood inquiries to try to obtain more information. At about 2:41 a.m. today, the Regina Police Service also received a similar call from the 2200 block of Rae Street, which is in close proximity to the 2300 block of Broad Street. It is possible this may be a separate event or perhaps the call is related to the original event on Broad Street. A search of the 2200 block Rae Street and surrounding area did not turn up any additional physical evidence.
This investigation is ongoing. Police are asking anyone with information to contact the Regina Police Service at 306-777-6500 or call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS). The Regina Police Service thanks the public and the media for their assistance in this matter.
