A man and a youth have each been charged with seven counts of attempted murder in connection with an incident at a home where people were injured by gunshots and bladed weapons.
Nygel Ryan Reid Shingoose, 23, and a 17-year-old Regina boy have each been charged with three counts of attempt to commit murder using a firearm, four counts of attempt to commit murder and finally break and enter and commit theft. The 17-year-old cannot be named in accordance with provisions in the Youth Criminal Justice Act.
Police eventually found a total of seven victims, three of whom were taken to hospital with injuries.
The investigation began when police responded to a house in the 600 block of Montague Street on Nov. 17 at approximately 3:42 a.m. for a report that people inside the home had been seriously injured. Police found two men and a woman inside the home who were injured. Police gave the victims emergency medical assistance until EMS arrived.
Police said some of the injuries appeared to be from gunshot wounds, while others appeared to be from a bladed weapon.
The victims were transported to hospital, while police held the scene to gather evidence and interview potential witnesses.
A fourth victim, a man, was located a few hours later. Police later found three more victims, two men and a woman, who were in the house at the time of the incident but left before police arrived. The investigation eventually led to the arrest of two suspects, one on Dec. 14, 2017 and another on Dec. 20. The investigation is still ongoing.
Shingoose made his first court appearance on Dec. 15, while the youth made his first appearance on Dec. 21.
