SHOOTING: Drive By Shooting on Ware Road North


(THUNDER BAY, ON) – Today around 5:00 pm hardworking officers with the Thunder Bay detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police were dispatched to a call of shots fired in Ware Township.
A drive-by shooting happened where a home was targeted on Ware Road North / Jalava Road.
According to the home owner, They had just arrived home and someone on a side-by-side pulled up to the end of their driveway and started shooting at the home. Windows were smashed and holes were made in the side of the building. Children reside in the home. The homeowner said that they were driving up the road and that the side-by-side was driving irratically and they flipped the side-by-side driver “the bird”. The side-by-side then turned around and shot up the house.

The homeowner narrowly missed being shot as they were walking towards the window to see what was going on and who had stopped there. A school bus was in the area and a student was being dropped off at the time. The child ran and took cover when shots starting firing off. No injuries are believed to have been sustained.

The vehicle then fled the scene down Jalava road and escaped down a turkey-trail that leads towards Mapleward.

  1. Obviously just another crackhead behind the wheel. So common in Dumpster Bay. Maybe he will wrap himself around a tree soon and save us some money. If people only knew 1 /1000th of what is really going on in this dump city they would be all be packing, have 30 locks on their doors and never drive in this town. And what is going on is only the appetizer. You aint seen nothing yet. The cops are on the loosing end of this battle. They are totally outnumbered. and at a disadvantage because of the judicial system. For every one they shake, another dozen take their place. The cops arrest them and the judges because of the piss poor laws let em go. And until the laws are changed dont hold your breath waiting for for any change.

  2. This is outright insanity. People could have easily been killed by this psycho.
    All I can say, is that I hope the asshole was on drugs. Otherwise, he’s truly nuts and beyond rehabilitation.
    Can’t help but wonder why this house was targeted? Seems unusual for even a nut to do something like this.
    Hope the OPP track this pr!ck down and nail him hard and I also hope the “justice” system doesn’t drop the ball come court time.
