The Barrie Police are appealing to the public for assistance after an abandoned home was damaged in the City of Barrie.

On Saturday, September, 15, 2018, just before 8:30 a.m., police responded to a residence on Dunlop Street West, after receiving a report from a witness who observed the front window of an abandoned home damaged as a result of bullet holes.

Investigators have confirmed the home was abandoned, and vacant at the time of the incident, and determined the damaged was a result of a single gunshot to the front window. Investigators canvassed that area and determined the incident occurred early Saturday morning between 2:00 a.m. and 4:00 a.m.

There have been no reports of injuries as a result of the incident and the investigation is ongoing.
