Assault Investigation Leads Windsor Police To Loaded Gun

There is one less gun on Windsor streets thanks to Windsor police.

Officers were investigating an assault around 5am Sunday and spotted a man matching the description of the suspect leaning against a building on Tecumseh Rd at Lauzon.

When police approached, the suspect fled on foot and ignored commands to stop.

Officers say he appeared to be holding on to an object in his jacket, which turned out to be a loaded revolver.

26-year-old Dylan Travis was arrested after a foot chase and is charged with a number of weapons-related offences as well as trafficking.

A quantity of marijuana and cash were also seized.

Police say Travis was not involved in the assault.
