Two Charged In Nov. 20 Barrie Pellet Gun Incident

Barrie | by Matt Sitler  

Police now say the second pellet gun incident that was reported actually never happened...

That second pellet gun incident police were investigating? It never happened.

On November 20th, Barrie Police Service was told that a male had been shot in the eye by what was believed to be a small calibre pellet-type gun.

But the following day, an officer from the Huronia West Detachment of the OPP was investigating a multi-vehicle collision on County Road 90 in Springwater Township when a motorist approached to report that he too had been shot at by what was believed to have been a person in a passing car.

Following an investigation, Barrie Police have now charged the motorist in the second report, a 19-year-old Essa man, with aggravated assault, pointing a firearm, three counts of possession of a dangerous weapon, and five counts of assault with a weapon. These charges relate to several incidents, including the shooting which occurred on November 20th in Barrie.

The 19-year-old also faces a charge of public mischief for the false report of having been shot with a pellet gun on November 21st.

As well, a 21-year-old Innisfil man has been charged with aggravated assault, pointing a firearm, three counts of possession of a dangerous weapon, and five counts of assault with a weapon.

Both men appeared in Court in Barrie today for a bail hearing.
