Investigators said a black pickup truck with two occupants was travelling southbound on Barrydowne when the occupant or occupants in the suspect vehicle, travelling in the same direction, fired numerous times, striking the pickup truck.

No one was hit by the bullets, although the driver received minor injuries as a result of shattered glass.


It is believed the suspect vehicle, only described as a light-coloured SUV or van, may be related to the shooting that took place the previous evening in Azilda.

This morning, the pickup truck with its back window and smaller passenger-side window shattered remained in a parking lot on Barrydowne Road.

A forensic team from Greater Sudbury Police Service watched over the area, video taping and taking photos at some of the numerous evidence cones scattered throughout the area.

The investigation is ongoing. The southbound lane of Barrydowne Road remains closed.

Anyone who may have been in the area at that time and may have observed anything suspicious is asked to call police or Crime Stoppers, which is offering a guaranteed $2,000 reward for any information leading to the arrest of those involved in the shootings.

Police are to provide further information at a press conference this morning at 11 a.m. Stay with NorthernLife.ca as we will be livestreaming the press conference on the website.
