Windsor police have arrested one suspect and are still searching for another after a shooting last Saturday morning in the 1300-block of Askin Avenue.

Police say 27-year-old Jeffery Kumi of Windsor was arrested on Thursday after officers located a parked vehicle associated to a suspect in the area of Park Street and Bruce Avenue.

According to Police, the K-9 Unit was called to the scene and located Kumi but he fled on foot — a chase ensued and Kumi ignored commands to stop so Police Service Dog Hasko was deployed to assist with the arrest.

Police say Kumi received non-life-threatening injuries during the arrest and was transported to hospital.

Kumi is facing 10 charges including: attempt murder, use firearm while committing indictable offence, discharge firearm and possess loaded firearm without authorization.

He is also facing a drug charge.

As heard on AM800 news, around 12:30am last Saturday, police were called to Askin Avenue for a report of a man suffering from a gunshot wound. 

Police now say there was a verbal altercation outside the home before the shooting and a black SUV was seen leaving the area. 

Investigators say 19-year-old Ilyas Gilao of Brampton is the other suspect and is wanted for several offences including attempt murder.
