The Halton Regional Police Service is now investigating a second pellet gun shooting in Oakville.

At approximately 5:00 pm on the 29th May a male youth was walking in the area of Pilgrims Way in Oakville. The youth was approached by a black minivan that crossed into the oncoming lane of traffic. The driver of this vehicle then fired a single BB pellet at the victim as it drove past.

The suspect in this latest incident is described as male, white, approximately 6’ tall and 18 years of age. The driver had brown short hair and wore a long sleeved plaid shirt.

When a pellet gun is used in the manner such as these incidents, Police will consider the numerous firearm related criminal offences available to them to prosecute offenders.

The HRPS continues to seek the public’s assistance in this investigation and anyone with information is asked to call the Oakville CIB office at 905-825-4747 Ext 2216 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
