Regina police have laid seven charges against a 16-year-old boy and are looking for a second suspect after an investigation into gunshots that hit two homes in North Central early Sunday morning.

Someone fired small calibre bullets at a home on the 1500 block of Cameron Street around 3:30 a.m. Sunday, according to a police news release. Minutes later, another call came in about a home on the 1300 block of Athol Street being shot at. No one was injured at either home.

Police attending the scenes also noticed damage done to vehicles in the area.

 The 16-year-old suspect in custody, who cannot be named pursuant to the Youth Criminal Justice Act, was arrested without incident shortly after the second home was shot at, police said. 

He is charged with possession of a firearm, two counts of discharging a restricted or prohibited firearm at a place in a reckless manner, two counts of mischief under $5,000, possession of a weapon and breach of undertaking. He made his first appearance on the charges in youth court Monday morning. 

Police are still looking for a second male suspect.
