Police have released the above photo and are actively looking for the suspect involved in an incident involving a firearm in Kingston’s north end last week.
Kingston Police were called to the scene of a dispute outside the townhouse units at 312 Conacher Drive at approximately 12:15 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 7, 2019.

Neighbours reported the incident involved at least two males and a female. Kingston Police, the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) Emergency Response Team (ERT), and Canine Units attended the scene and combed the area for evidence throughout the afternoon.
The suspect then fled the area as a passenger in a white vehicle. Police were able to find and speak to the driver of that vehicle, who indicated that he’d dropped the suspect off downtown. The suspect has not been seen since then, Finn said.
