The resident, who was sleeping at the time was not injured and called 911 after hearing breaking glass. There are no suspects at this time and the Guns and Gangs Unit is currently investigating.
Any witnesses or anyone with information is asked to contact the Ottawa Police Guns and Gangs Unit at 613-236-1222 ext. 5050.
We almost rented an apartment on Byron Avenue near where the shooting took place. God sent us to the right place where my kids were born and this building has a lot of memories. We even have the old cupboards in all rooms same with the closets. On Byron the place had no closets and the kitchen was half the size of the one I have now which is mighty small. We lived in many places but this is still the best. Ottawa is full of gangs and not a place to live like before.
