Windsor Police have arrested a suspect for attempted murder following an early morning shooting.

Police say around 1:30am on July 15th, 2023, they responded to a report of shots fired in the 3900 block of Seminole Street. At the scene, officers found four shell 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 Street 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, police identified a suspect and determined the shooting was a targeted incident.

Shortly before 5:00am they 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.
