Thunder Bay, Ont., police say 2 charged after gun fired in apartment; no injuries

THUNDER BAY, Ont. — Police say they're planning to do a thorough search of a Thunder Bay, Ont., apartment for weapons after a gun was fired during an incident Wednesday evening.

Officers were sent to the home around 6 p.m. after a 911 call reported the sound of gunshots and a man outside with a gun.

Investigators say a man and woman were drinking in an apartment and allege that after they had a disagreement the man went outside with a gun and pointed it at a neighbour returning home from work.

They say the gun was discharged after he went back inside, but there were no injuries.

After about three hours, a 20-year-old woman and a 21-year-old man surrendered to police. She is charged with breach of probation and he faces counts of pointing a firearm, reckless discharge of a firearm, and possession of a firearm while prohibited.

Officers entered the apartment to confirm that it was vacant and saw several guns, ammunition and a compound bow in plain view and were waiting for a warrant to search for other weapons.
