Shots Fired Near Children's Safety Village

Windsor police are looking for two suspects who allegedly engaged in target practice in the Forest Glade area.

Officers were called to Lauzon Rd. just after midnight on Saturday, May 4th for reports that two people were shooting a long gun in the area behind the Children's Safety Village.

Police say the pair arrived driving a 2014 four-door white Buick Verano with the Ontario licence plates BYDT74 which had been reported missing in the city in February.

Video surveillance appeared to show a man teaching a woman how to fire the gun and officers found fresh bullet holes in some street signs and hydro poles.

A number of spent casings were seized for forensic analysis.

Police say the illegal use of firearms is extremely dangerous for the community and even without intent, a life could easily be lost.

The matter remains under investigation.

Anyone who can identify the two suspects are asked to call Windsor Police at 519-255-6700 ext. 4350, Crime Stoppers anonymously at 519-258-8477 (TIPS) or online at
