Kingston Police have arrested and charged a 30-year-old Brockville man who they accuse of driving the getaway vehicle connected to a shooting in Kingston last week.
At about 3:20 a.m. on Jan. 29, three masked men entered an apartment building on Fraser Street in Kingston carrying two firearms. They approached one of the apartments and banged on the door demanding cash.
When the occupants didn’t answer, the men left the building but then fired several shots at the apartment’s windows. Inside slept two adults and two children.
On Friday evening, Kingston Police and Brockville Police executed a search warrant at an apartment at 44 Central St. in Brockville. There they located two of the men involved and evidence pertaining to the case.
Arrested at the scene were 53-year-old Everett Timothy Telgen of Brockville and 31-year-old Jeffrey Burtch of Perth. Police have charged them with two counts of attempt murder, four counts of reckless discharge of a firearm, possession of a firearm without a licence, having their face disguised to commit an offence, breaking and entering, and breaching their probation. Telgen was also charged with three counts of possession of a firearm while prohibited.
On Monday, investigators identified the driver of the three men’s getaway vehicle. He was found at about 2:25 p.m. leaving his vehicle on Delhi Street in Brockville. He was arrested and, during a search, officers found crack cocaine and crystal meth.
Police have identified the man as 30-year-old Joseph Ferguson of Brockville. They’ve charged him with attempted robbery, attempted break and enter, two counts of attempted murder, four counts of reckless discharge of a firearm, and using a firearm to commit an offence, in relation to the incident of Jan. 29.
