THUNDER BAY — A woman wanted in connection to a firearm incident from last November remains at large according to Thunder Bay police.

Brianna Lynn Netemegesic, 21, of Thunder Bay was one of two people sought by police following an incident involving a firearm at a Picton Avenue residence on Nov. 19.

Police were dispatched to the area after learning a suspect had pointed a firearm at another person. As part of the investigation, police contained the residence where they thought the suspects may have fled but were not located at the time. One of the two suspects, Owen John Boyce, was located and arrested by police at a bar on the city’s south side a few days after the incident.

A Thunder Bay Police spokesperson confirmed on Tuesday Netemegesic remains at large and is wanted for the incident in November.

Police said if Netemegesic is seen in public, people should call 911 immediately and not approach or confront her.

She was also charged with second-degree murder and aggravated assault in March. Court documents show Netemegesic was granted bail on these charges on Aug. 20, 2020.

Boyce remains in custody and is expected to appear in court next on Jan. 13.
