(THUNDER BAY, ON) – You heard that right ladies and gentlemen, this is the third large police presence at the Thunder Bay Housing complex known as 288 Windsor in recent history.
I counted 14 police vehicles, including the “Emergency Measures” unit, 2 “paddy wagons” and numerous police vehicles.
A REAL Concerned Citizen told TRCCTB that the police presence has been present since before 4:00 am.
When I tried to lurk up to the incident, I was quickly told “you have to go around sir”, I am not one to get in the brave men and women of our police service. So I obliged.
Emergency Task Unit members were seen on location with what appears to be around 3-foot long rifles and serious body armour. Their focus did not appear to be on the same unit as the shooting from a previous event.
Please avoid the area and allow our Thunder Bay Police to handle whatever situation is unfolding there.
