Following an incident where an adult male was shot with a handgun, Kingston Police are asking the public for help in identifying the suspect involved.
The shooting took place at approximately 2 a.m. on Sunday, Jun. 2, 2019 in a residence on Rideau Street in downtown Kingston and was not originally reported to police. According to Kingston Police, tips regarding the incident were received by police a week and a half after it occurred, and detectives have since been able to substantiate that the incident did, in fact, take place.
The victim suffered non-life-threatening injuries as a result of the incident, and did not attend hospital for treatment. The suspect in the shooting has not been identified, and detectives are attempting to locate cooperative witnesses.
Although the suspect’s details are vague, the shooter has been described as being a male standing over 6’0” tall, wearing dark clothing and covering his face. It is believed he was with a second party that may have been a female who was wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt that had ‘Puma’ in white lettering on the front of it. This second party is not believed to have entered the residence, and may have been in a nearby non-descript vehicle in the area. The investigation is ongoing.
