A second suspect has surrendered in connection with a Halloween shooting in Windsor while a third suspect, a Toronto-area man considered armed and dangerous, remains at large.

On Oct. 31 at around 9:45 p.m., officers were called to the 1600 block of Ouellette Avenue after a report of shots fired.

Investigators learned a vehicle had been parked behind the apartment building at 1666 Ouellette Ave., and that after shots rang out, the vehicle headed north on Dufferin Place.

At around 10 p.m., a 22-year-old Windsor man arrived at hospital in Windsor suffering from a single gunshot wound. Police said it was not considered life-threatening.

Officers met with the victim and then found the vehicle involved in the shooting in the hospital parking lot.

Police believe the shooting took place in the vehicle behind the apartment building before the shooter fled on foot.

The vehicle was seized and a search warrant was issued which led to an examination on Nov. 1. Investigators made a number of evidential discoveries in the vehicle, including a bullet hole and ammunition.

On Friday Julia Sweeney, 19, of Windsor, was arrested in the area of Park Street and Ouellette Avenue. She is charged with attempted murder and robbery with a weapon.

On Monday another suspect — who police had not identified by name, but had issued a security camera photo of — turned himself in at police headquarters for arrest.

The remaining suspect is Guled Ismail, 25, of the Toronto area, who is wanted for attempted murder, robbery with a weapon, trafficking a controlled substance (suspected cocaine) and five counts of breach of recognizance.

In April, Ismail was charged with possession of a firearm without a licence in connection with a police search warrant at a Howard Avenue motel that uncovered drugs including 100 grams of the street drug known as purple heroin, a deadly mix of heroin and fentanyl.

Ismail is considered armed and dangerous and police warn anyone who sees him should keep their distance and call 911.
