THUNDER BAY - Police are asking for the public’s assistance in locating two individuals in connection to a Thursday evening incident involving a firearm.

Owen John Boyce, 23, of Thunder Bay and Brianna Lynn Netemegesic, 21, of Thunder Bay are both wanted by police, according to a police media release.

Netemegesic was charged with second-degree murder and aggravated assault in March in connection to a homicide on Picton Avenue. Court documents show Netemegesic was released from custody following a bail hearing on Aug. 20 to two sureties.

She was released from custody on several conditions including not to possess any weapons after pledging a total of $3,200 to the Superior Court of Justice.

On Thursday, Nov. 19, officers were dispatched to the zero-to-100 block of Picton Avenue just after 10 p.m. following reports of a firearm.

Police learned a suspect had pointed a firearm at another person and were able to identify a suspect and the residence they may have fled to.

Officers contained an area around the home which was held until a warrant was obtained to allow officers to enter the residence. The contained area was released shortly after 10 a.m. on Friday, Nov. 20, the release said.

Police continue to locate the suspects. The two accused and victims of this incident were all known to each other police say.

Anyone with information on Boyce or Netemegesic is asked to call the police at 807-684-1200 or through Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

If you see either suspect, do not approach or confront them. Call 911 immediately, police say.
