Weapons incident sends one to hospital in Timmins


One man was sent to hospital following a weapons incident in Timmins’ north end early Sunday morning.

In a brief phone interview with CTV News, the Timmins Police Service (TPS) confirmed officers responded to a weapons complaint shortly before 3 a.m. in the area of Borden Avenue and Waterloo Road and one male was transported to the Timmins and District Hospital by ambulance with non-life-threatening injuries.

There was a heavy police presence in the area – including several Ontario Provincial Police vehicles.

Photos posted to a local social media page show a TPS forensic vehicle was still near the scene as of 11 a.m.

Police said the investigation into the incident is still ongoing.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call TPS at 705-264-1201 or contact Crime Stoppers anonymously. Top Stories
