(THUNDER BAY, ON) – The news team woke up to multiple eye-witness accounts surrounding an incident that unfolded over night at a notorious north-side location.
The housing complex located at 288 Windsor, nearest to Junot, had heavily armed Thunder Bay Police Officers active in the area, according to witnesses
An estimated 8 police cruisers and 14 police officers(heavily armed) were said to have been on the scene of the late night/early morning situation.
This morning, we saw 4 police cruisers still at the scene, and police tape strung up like it was a kids birthday party.
We had a few people tell us they heard what sounded like gunshots, but could have been easily mistaken for flash bangs police use during a raid. Thunder Bay Police have since confirmed that gunshots were reported.
The area is well known for housing drug dealers and violent criminals.
Thunder Bay Housing has asked the courthouse not to release people on bail to their properties, yet they seem to continue to do so.
I have personally witnessed, what I believe to be a violent criminal, be released from jail to an address at 288 Windsor. Due to what I believe is overuse and abuse of publication bans, I was not able to warn the public.
If you have any information regarding this incident, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are getting conflicting information about this situation, we have been told that there were two people severely injured, but then at the same time the director of communications is telling us no one was injured. This is the same director of communications who failed to tell the public about the macs employee who had their throat slashed.
We will update this article as more information becomes available..
