[Ottawa] Police surrounded an apartment complex in northern Ottawa last night after gunshots were reportedly heard by neighbours.
“I was just doing the dishes,” said Cathy Yeoman, who lived just next door. “I wasn’t sure where the shots came from, but I called the police immediately. Then I just stayed inside until they arrived.”
When police arrived on the scene, they found a window smashed and the body of a man who was later identified to be George Cambridge, an accountant with no known family.
“He was a very quiet man,” Yeoman told reporters. “He was often travelling abroad, but even when he was home you would never hear a peep from him. The few times I saw him, he was polite enough. Very withdrawn, though. I don’t know why anyone would want to hurt him.”
No suspects have been apprehended in the case, and the police have issued no statements as of yet.
