A man is dead and one person is in custody following a shooting in Cannington this morning.
At approximately 1 a.m. Friday (April 20), Durham Regional Police were called to a residence on Hillside Crescent for shots fired. Police located a man who resides at this residence with gunshot wounds. Another male resident was taken into custody.
Police say Brian Shane Windsor, age 38, of Hillside Crescent was pronounced dead at the scene. This is Durham Region’s sixth homicide victim of 2018.
DRPS has closed a section of Hillside Crescent, near Munro Street, for the investigation.
The Brock Voice has been in contact with several residents on Hillside Crescent who said that the home in question was well known to police.
One woman, who asked not to be identified, said she heard a commotion around 1 a.m.
“We moved here in 2016 and then we figured out the goings-on at that house. Between complaints of constant barking from their dogs, domestic fights and suspected drug dealing, it’s been a pain on the crescent for some time,” she said.
“Police have been called there more than once.”
Check back for more information as it becomes available.
