One man was arrested and a woman was injured Tuesday afternoon when her vehicle was hit by what appeared to be a pellet fired from a residence in the 800-block of Johnson St.
VicPD arrived on scene at about 3:10 p.m, after the woman called 911 to report that a window in her vehicle had been “blown out.” Police locked down the block, closing it off to traffic shortly afterward and commenced their investigation.
Evidence consistent with a pellet gun having been fired was discovered on scene. Officers ultimately pinpointed a suite in the Portland Hotel Society residence at 844 Johnson St. from which they believed the pellets were fired. After a brief negotiation with a man inside, he was taken into custody.
The woman was treated on scene for non-life-threatening injuries and the block was closed to traffic for about an hour.
VicPD ask anyone with new information about the incident to call 250-995-7654, or do so anonymously to Greater Victoria Crime Stoppers 1-800-222-8477.
