Suspect arrested for attempted murder

​The Windsor Police Service has arrested a suspect for attempted murder following an early morning shooting. 

On July 15, 2023, at approximately 1:30 a.m., officers responded to a report of shots fired in the 3900 block of Seminole Street. At the scene, officers found casings on the street and a bullet hole in the rear bumper of a parked vehicle as well as blood in a nearby alley.

Roughly two hours later, while still investigating the incident on Seminole St., officers were called to the 100 block of McKay Avenue for a report of a person with a gunshot wound. Officers located a 23-year-old male who had been shot once in the leg. Officers quickly applied a tourniquet to the victim’s leg, which successfully stopped the bleeding. Once paramedics arrived, the victim was taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. 

Through investigation, the Major Crimes Unit identified a suspect and determined the shooting was a targeted incident.

Shortly before 5 a.m., members of the Emergency Services Unit (ESU) and Problem-Oriented Policing Unit (POP) located and arrested the suspect in the 700 block of Chilver Road. The suspect, a 23-year-old male, will be charged with attempted murder and multiple firearms offences.
