Two men arrested in Brockville in connection to Kingston shooting

Two men have been arrested and charged with attempted murder by the Kingston Police in Brockville in connection to a shooting that took place early Tuesday morning. The third suspect is still at large.

A little after 3:20 a.m., a group of three men wearing ski masks had entered the apartment block at 73 Fraser St. and tried to enter a unit. The men pounded on the door and were demanding money, police said. One of the men was carrying a silver handgun and another a camouflaged shotgun.

Police said that when they weren’t able to enter a unit, they left the building but then fired several rounds at one of the unit’s windows. In the unit were two adults and two young children.

The suspects were seen driving away from the scene in two separate vehicles: a light-coloured car and a dark SUV.

Kingston Police’s investigation led them to an apartment at 44 Central St. in Brockville, said Sgt. Jay Finn of the major crimes unit. On Friday evening, emergency response unit officers from Kingston Police and Brockville Police executed a search warrant at the apartment. The two men were at in the apartment at the time.

A 53-year-old man from Brockville and a 31-year-old man from Perth were both charged with two counts of attempted murder and four counts of discharging a firearm with intent.

Officers also located evidence pertaining to the case, but specifics could not be released Friday night.

The man still wanted by police can be seen in the surveillance photos police sent out earlier this week. He is the heavyset man wearing blue jeans, a grey hoodie and carrying a camouflaged shotgun.
