Multiple Crime Scenes After a Home Invasion and Shots Fired
On December 1, 2023, at about 8:00pm, police received numerous 911 calls regarding gunshots fired in the area of Pine St. This disturbance led police searching for suspects throughout the downtown area of Brockville, who were believed to be in a small white sedan.
