Shots fired at pickup on Barrydowne Road

Police believe this may be related to Azilda shooting

SUDBURY–At approximately 11:00 p. m. on April 30th, the Greater Sudbury Police Service received a complaint of a vehicle being shot at on Barrydowne Rd., between Hawthorne and Gemmell.

At this time, the investigation has revealed that a black pick-up 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 pick-up truck.
