A man and woman from Regina appeared in court this week on attempted murder charges following an incident on Sunday.
Twenty-nine year-old Timothy Louison faces several charges including attempted murder with a gun, and possession of methamphetamine. Twenty-seven year-old Samantha Kakakaway is also charged with attempted murder.
On Sunday at 6:00 a.m., police responded to a call about a forced entry at a home in the 1500 block of Rae St. When police arrived on scene, a man was found lying outside the home with severe injuries.
The injured man was taken to hospital where he continues to be treated.
An investigation conducted by the Regina Police indicate that a dispute took place between two residents of the Rae St. home. It’s alleged that the female resident contacted a friend to pick her up from the house during the dispute with the male resident.
Two men and a woman arrived at the home in a grey Acura, which was confirmed by police to be a stolen car. One of the men from the car was allegedly near the back of the house, when a loud noise was heard followed by the male resident of the home emerging injured, and collapsing on the sidewalk.
The investigation concludes that the female resident of the home got into the stolen car with the other two men and woman, and fled.
The Acura was seen a short time later along with a man and woman running from the vehicle. The other two suspects were not located.
Regina Police pursued the vehicle occupants on foot, however the man who police believed to be armed with a gun, escaped. The woman was detained without incident and was identified as the female resident of the home on Rae St.
Continued investigation led police to identify the man, and locate him at a home in the 400 block of Connaught St. on Monday. The situation was suspected to be high-risk, and members of the Crisis Negotiation and Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) Teams were on scene. The negotiation continued into the early morning hours on Tuesday, and was eventually resolved without incident.
A search warrant for the home found a sawed-off 12-gauge shotgun, which police believed was the weapon used in the attempted murder, and drugs.
Louison made his first appearance in Provincial Court on Wednesday, and Kakakaway appeared in court earlier this week on Monday.
