OPP assist Six Nations police with attempted murder investigation

Ontario Provincial Police say they are helping Six Nations police with an attempted murder investigation.

Six Nations police were called to a residence on 6th Line for an injured male just after 4 a.m. Jan. 12, according to a news release from OPP.

The male was transported to hospital, police said.

OPP Const. Ed Sanchuk said the victim was shot and has since undergone surgery. He said he did not know the victim’s age or if he was from Six Nations.

Sanchuk said police are still trying to piece together what happened, but so far they know the victim had been at multiple public locations in Brantford prior to the shooting.

Provincial police issued a press release Wednesday, saying members of the Haldimand County OPP major crime unit — under the direction of Det. Inst. Randy Gaynor of OPP’s Criminal Investigation Branch — are helping Six Nations police with the investigation.

“We know somebody in the community knows something about this incident,” Sanchuk said.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Six Nations police at 519-445-2811, OPP at 1-888-310-1122 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
