Windsor Police are searching for two suspects after a gun was reportedly fired following an altercation early Tuesday morning.
The Amherstburg detachment of Windsor Police say it happened at about 4 a.m. in the 400 block of Simcoe Street after two men allegedly broke into a vehicle, according to a police news release.
The men reportedly rummaged through the car and opened the garage door but didn't take anything.
Police stated that the owner of the vehicle confronted the men, who both had guns, and got into a verbal altercation with them.
During this time, one of the guns was reportedly fired and both suspects fled on foot.
Firearm had orange tip, could be cap gun
The weapons were described as black guns with orange tips on them, police said in a news release.
Police speculate that they could be cap guns based on their description, but stated that both suspects are considered to be "armed and dangerous."
Further investigation found "multiple other vehicle entries in the area," said police. These incidents are all believed to have occurred between 3 a.m. and 4:30 a.m.
