Almost invisible from the road on Sunday morning, two small holes punched through both panes of glass of a home on Froom Crescent in Regina – gunshots from early the previous morning.
Police were called out to the quiet residential street around 3 a.m. on Saturday for a report of gunshots, where they found the window.
Kris Ryan lives with his family just a two doors down the from the home that was shot at. He said he and his wife were woken up by loud bangs on Saturday morning.
“We got out of bed, I looked out the front and the back and there was nothing, so we went back to bed for a big and then came out like 10 minutes later, and there was police everywhere.”
Like many people, Ryan said he couldn’t immediately identify the sound as a gunshot.
“It was loud enough to wake me up but I couldn’t be, like, ‘yeah it was a gunshot, it wasn’t’. It was just like a loud bang.”
Later that day, a police officer told Ryan’s wife the incident was some kind of a dispute so they didn’t have to worry. Though Ryan said it is a bit scary to have it happen so close.
“I don’t think it was, like, a random thing, so that kind of makes us a little bit safe-feeling.”
According to Ryan, nothing quite like this has happened there before.
“I think it was a standoff just over a year ago across the street, and then, yeah, other than that there hasn’t been anything gunshot-wise.”
