The Regina Police Service is asking for information from the public as police investigate an incident where it’s believed shots were fired today in the area of Parliament Avenue and Robinson Street. There are no known injuries resulting from this incident.
At 2:43 p.m. on Monday, January 9, 2017, police were dispatched to the 2900 block of Parliament Avenue and 3000 block of Robinson Street for a report of shots fired. The initial information indicated there were two vehicles involved and shots fired, but it is not clear, at this stage, who fired at whom or exactly how many shots were fired. Police were able to obtain an initial vehicle description and did a thorough area search, but neither vehicle was located. A physical search of the immediate area found evidence of shots fired: some casings as well as holes in a nearby vehicle and an apartment residence (shot through window). No one was injured in either of those discharges. Forensic Identification investigators are at the scene to gather physical evidence and other officers are obtaining witness statements. The schools in the area were notified and had School Resource Officers present at dismissal; there were no schools placed in Secure-the-Building mode as it appeared both suspect vehicles had left the area. The School Resource Officers maintained a visible presence until dismissal was complete.
It is still early in the investigation, so the vehicle descriptions are not being released at this time; however, the Regina Police Service is encouraging anyone with information to contact the Regina Police Service at 306-777-6500 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
