Provincial police have made an arrest and laid a charge of attempted murder following a shooting over the weekend in Ingersoll. 

A 27-year-old from Six Nations of the Grand River is charged with attempted murder, two counts of robbery with a firearm, dangerous driving, two counts of possession of stolen property and arson. 

The charges stem from an incident Sunday that sent one person to hospital with serious but non-life threatening injuries, and led to two-day a manhunt for what police called a “dangerous person.”

According to Oxford County OPP, it was around noon that the owner of a pick-up truck emerged from a Thames Street South business and discovered a stranger inside the vehicle. Police said a verbal dispute escalated into a physical confrontation, at which point police allege the suspect shot the victim.

The suspect then fled the scene in the stolen vehicle. 

Police said the vehicle was later involved in a crash in Norfolk County some 60 kilometres from Ingersoll. After displaying a firearm, investigators said the suspect stole a white Dodge Ram pick-up truck from a person who stopped to help. 

An OPP plane later spotted the truck, which had been abandoned. 

Police said they made an arrest Monday in relation to the shooting.

The accused is expected to appear in a Woodstock court Tuesday.
