Regina shooting house damage

 

“There were ten shots that went through the house. They were aiming to kill.” Those were Marie’s words. Marie isn’t her real name. She was the victim of a sudden and brazen attack last Wednesday night. A sizable group – Marie saw “four or five people” – came up to her house and fired 10 bullets into her home.

 

“There were gunshots that went in through the window and went out through the wall,” Marie said. Taking a look around the home shows that she isn’t kidding. The windows are smashed, and there are bullet holes in the wall, in the furniture; two rounds even went through a brand-new leather couch.

During the campaign, a free influenza vaccine will be available at various locations across the city to all Saskatchewan residents six months of age or older.
