Man dies after shooting on Jasmine Crescent, police confirm
Police investigating Ottawa's 5th homicide of 2016
A man died in hospital after being shot at the intersection of Jasmine Crescent and Ogilvie Road just before 6:30 p.m., Ottawa police have confirmed.
It's Ottawa's fifth homicide of 2016, and the third on Jasmine Crescent in less than a year.
Duty Insp. Sean McDade said police were interviewing many witnesses on Tuesday night, and that there was "conflicting information" on whether or not a vehicle was involved in the shooting.
No suspects have been identified and it's too early to tell what the motive of the shooting might be, he said in the hours following the shooting.
Roch Rondeau, a 21-year-old who lives in the neighbourhood, didn't see the shooting but saw a young man lying on the pavement being treated by paramedics.
"It's not that good of a neighbourhood anymore," said Rondeau, adding he'd like to see more "a lot more security" in the area.
