UPDATE: Shooting and Stabbing Near High Street


(THUNDER BAY, ON) – What we have pieced together with the evidence we have is that a male shot a gun off near the pet store “Pet-Tastic” and then a short time later, a male was stabbed near the area. Police made an arrest a short time later outside a notorious “trap apartment” near Inchiquin and Memorial.

Police have released limited information regarding this shooting/stabbing incident. Below is the release they made.


Thunder Bay Police Service officers with the Uniform Patrol Branch were dispatched to a business in the 300 block of Queen Street following reports of a firearm being discharged shortly afternoon on Saturday, Dec. 21.

When officers arrived at the Pet-Tastic at the corner of Queen and High Streets they located a 25-year-old male who appeared to have been the victim of a recent assault.

Paramedics transported the victim to the Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre where he is now being treated for unknown injuries. The specific nature of these injuries is not known at this time.


As a result of an ongoing investigation police located and arrested a 33-year-old male accused.

The victim and accused in this incident were known to each other.

Members of the Thunder Bay Police Service’s Major Crimes Unit are now investigating the circumstances surrounding this assault, including reports that a firearm may have been used.

There was an incident at the store today where a wounded individual and an armed individual entered the store. We are all unharmed but a bit shaken up.

  1. Nothing like a shooting/stabbing out in front of the pet shop on a Saturday afternoon.

    This f_____g town has gone to hell. Time for martial law to bring in the military, kick down doors and kick in some teeth.

    We have way too many drugged/drunk addicts and drug dealing snakes for our cops to handle alone.

    Bring in some hard ass JPs and judges too. Cops can’t keep up with “rubber stamp/revolving door” justice being handed out by the current limp dick judges in this town.

  2. wow this city is getting worse every day.. thank thew police for there quick response today .get a few more criminals off the street.

  3. I concur with the above comments. . The justice system is broken. Shore up the money to allow the system to work properly. Let’s se the laws be amended to get rid of the overcrowding inthe detention system for shit like breaches…. re route the money to be utilized for real crimes.. push the system and the lawyers in the system do their job more expeditiously . Get rid of 1/3 off for good behaviour . Create a behavioral model level system. And have inmates split all their time into 3 parts.. 1 straight up basics 2 school and vocation and 3 prepare them for getting out and being a productive member of society.. never perfect but better than the current system.. I could go on but that would take another year.
