No one willing to talk after southeast shooting

Police are frustrated with a lack of co-operation after shots were fired at a southeast community centre early yesterday morning.

Officers responded to the Ramsay Community Association Hall just after 2:30 a.m. after shots were fired and discovered several groups of people fighting, Insp. James Hardy said.

“It was a really dangerous situation for our officers to walk into with that many people fighting, and it was a tough scene to walk into,” Hardy said, adding there were about 200 people in the hall.

“And nobody wants to talk, so we don’t have any suspects in custody.”

Hardy said it was lucky nobody was hurt during the apparent ethnic community gathering.

“Anytime there is a gun fired amongst that many people, it’s concerning,” Hardy added.

Ramsay resident Crystal Wallace said she is concerned, but believes the shooting would not have been random.

“I don’t like it obviously, but I guess someone had a problem with someone there so I don’t feel any less safe in the community,” she said.

Police are asking anyone with information to contact them at 266-1234 or Crime Stoppers 1-800-222-8477.
