PETERBOROUGH-Peterborough Police are investigating after another shooting in the city this morning.
Officers responded to a 9-1-1 call about a shooting at a residence in the Dalhousie Street and Stewart Street area at approximately 11:00am this morning. A male victim was taken to Peterborough Regional Health Centre and then taken by helicopter to a Toronto hospital.
Peterborough Police say they do not believe this is a random incident and there is no current threat to public safety.
Next door neighbour Kenny Collins says it happened at a known drug house and was just a matter of time. “There is fighting at all hours of the night, traffic in and out at all hours, police are always present there and nobody seems ever to be taken away,” Collins told Kawartha 411 News. “It’s a common occurrence nowadays in this area. Covid is over it’s time the police start locking people up instead of giving an undertaking to appear in court.”
Detectives continue to investigate this incident and there will be increased police presence in the area. Anyone with information is asked to call Peterborough Police Crime Line at 705-876-1122 x555 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or online at www.stopcrimehere.
If you see any suspicious activity, please call Peterborough Police at 705-876-1122 or 9-1-1 if it’s an emergency.
This is the third shooting in Peterborough in the last few months. 37-year-old Shawn Singh was identified as the victim of a July 2 fatal shooting on Park Street North. A shooting on April 21 claimed the life of a 31-year-old Mississauga man. Another man was sent to hospital.
