NOTE: (added February 15, 2017) Please note an amendment to the information in paragraph 2. The original information suggested there was a firearm discharged, yet witnesses said there was no sound. The use of the words “discharged the firearm” was inaccurate, since there is no evidence at this stage that it was a real firearm. Our apologies for the confusion.
The Regina Police Service is investigating an incident that occurred at approximately 12:40 p.m. today, involving a possible firearm in the area of Dewdney Avenue and Albert Street.
Police were called at 12:41 p.m. on Tuesday, February 14, 2017, to the 2600 block of Dewdney Avenue for a report of a possible firearm incident. Initial information indicates that a female suspect allegedly pulled out what appeared to be a firearm, pointed it in the direction of a vehicle occupied by a driver. Police have not yet determined if the weapon is a real firearm. The following descriptions were obtained:
- The “victim” left the scene in a vehicle; age or gender of the “victim” is not known yet;
- The female suspect got into another vehicle as a passenger and the vehicle left the area;
- Police have located the “suspect vehicle” and its driver, but have not found the passenger/suspect.
This incident is still under investigation. Both vehicles fled the area and police are trying to locate both the suspect and victim of this incident. There are no known injuries at this time, as the result of this incident.
