UPDATE: Police seeks witness in downtown shooting


The Windsor Police Service is looking to speak to the driver of a Honda Civic who picked up the suspect following a downtown shooting over the weekend.

Shortly after 2 a.m. on November 5, 2023, officers responded to a report of shots fired in the 400 block of Ouellette Avenue. Once on scene, officers found a 23-year-old male victim with a gunshot wound to his bicep. Two other people were also grazed by bullets.

Investigators have since obtained surveillance footage of the shooting suspect. In one video, the suspect is seen hiding behind a parked vehicle while he speaks to someone on his cellular phone. 

The suspect is then seen getting into a white Honda Civic that pulls up along Park Street. We urge the driver of the Civic, who may not have been aware of the shooting at the time, to come forward and speak with investigators. 

We also continue to ask businesses and residents in the neighbouring area to check their surveillance video between 1 and 3:30 a.m. on Nov. 5 for information that may be pertinent to this case.

The shooter is described as a white male, 19-23 years old, 150lbs, 5’7”, short black hair with a small build. At the time of the offence he wore, a black hooded sweatshirt, black pants and black shoes.
