Two Kitchener men were taken into custody and three guns were seized after a shooting incident at a Black Creek-area townhouse complex on Wednesday morning.

Officers allegedly found a 9mm Walther P38 handgun, a .22 calibre Black and Owen pocket revolver, and a Norinco QBZ “bullpup” style semi-automatic assault rifle, along with an assortment of ammunition.
A suspect identified as Tyler Hewitt-Debrusk was charged with five offences including discharge of a firearm into a place, possess loaded regulated firearm and occupy motor vehicle with firearm.
A second suspect identified as Zachariah Deveau was charged with 17 offences including carless storage of a firearm, discharge of a firearm into a place and occupy motor vehicle with a firearm.
