Still no update from police on Cannington shooting

The DRPS is continuting its investigation into the fatal shooting in Cannington back in April.

Police were called to a residence on Hillside Crescent for shots fired around 1 a.m. on April 20. Arriving at the home, officers located 38-year-old Brian Shane Windsor, a man who resides at the residence, with gunshot wounds. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

While police took another male resident into custody, they confirmed on April 23 that charges have not been filed and the man who was taken into custody initially had been released.

“The investigation continues and homicide investigators are hoping to have a better understanding of what transpired that morning,” reads an e-mail sent by the DRPS at the time.

They echoed that sentiment when asked to provide an update on the case earlier this week.

“There’s no updates at this time, (the investigation) is still ongoing,” the response reads.

On the day of the shooting, the Voice contacted 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.”

Anyone with new information about this homicide is asked to contact Det. Dennis of the Major Crime Homicide Unit at 1-888-579-1520 ext. 5402 or D/Cst. Pillman at ext. 2726.

Anonymous information can be sent to Durham Regional Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or online at and tipsters may be eligible for a $2,000 cash reward.
