On Monday, police issued an arrest warrant for Raymond Shawn Daniel Leroy.

He faces two counts of attempted murder, three counts of aggravated assault, three counts of uttering threats, break and enter, using a firearm in the commission of an offence, possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose, possession of a weapon while prohibited and a breach of previous court-ordered conditions.
