On Tuesday, August 9, at about 12:45 pm, Hanover Police officers responded to the Hanover & District Hospital on 7th Avenue following the report of an adult male currently in the Emergency Department being treated for a gunshot wound.
Hanover Police, with the support of officers from the West Grey Police Service, commenced an intensive investigation which included the assistance of an OPP Forensic Identification Unit.
On Friday, August 12, 2022, a warrant was obtained for the arrest of a man from West Grey and a province-wide alert was sent out to all police services in Ontario to be on the lookout for the suspect and the motor vehicle he was believed to be driving.
Subsequently, the 30-year-old man was located and arrested in Ottawa during the early evening hours of Saturday, August 13, 2022.
The suspect was taken into custody at gun-point by members of the Ottawa Police Service’s Tactical Team and their Guns & Gangs unit. He will be escorted back to Hanover early next week to face serious charges that include Attempted Murder of a 29-year-old Hanover man.
“The Hanover Police Service would like to thank our policing partners in West Grey, the OPP, and Ottawa for their work in bringing this phase of our investigation to a safe conclusion,” said Deputy Chief George Hebblethwaite. He added, “While an arrest has been made, the investigation continues and anyone with information about this shooting is asked to contact the Hanover Police Service or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).”
