McNabb Arena Thrown Objects Damage, Not Shots: Ottawa Police – Ottawa | The Canadian News

Ottawa police said Monday they arrested and charged a man with mischief in connection with damage to McNabb Arena that was speculated to be the result of a shooting.

Police received reports of damage to the front window of the Percy Street facility Friday night.

Mayor Jim Watson tweeted that he was “concerned to learn that shots were fired” in the arena where COVID-19 vaccines and tests are administered.

But police said they arrested a 36-year-old man Sunday and charged him with mischief, finding that the damage to the site was caused by thrown objects, not a bullet.

“There is no evidence to indicate that this incident was aimed at any of the services or activities at the facility,” police added in a statement.

The suspect was released with a scheduled court appearance.
