Police officers with guns drawn swooped in on an east London home Monday night.

Tactical officers surrounded a duplex at 12 Coventry Ave., located north of Highbury Avenue and Hamilton Road, around 8:30 p.m., neighbours said.

London police were assisting their counterparts in Barrie with an investigation, said Const. Sandasha Bough, who referred further questions to Barrie police.

Barrie police last week issued an arrest warrant for Londoner Dylan Brown, 24, following an Aug. 13 shooting outside a downtown Barrie bar that left a 28-year-old man seriously injured.

Police also issued an arrest warrant for Barrie resident Max Pritchett, 21, who is charged with attempted murder in the shooting.

Both men should be considered armed and dangerous, said police, who cautioned the public not to approach either man. Barrie police couldn’t be immediately reached for comment Tuesday.

Brown was charged with assault causing bodily harm and carrying a concealed weapon after a teenager was stabbed multiple times outside a Limberlost housing complex on Oct. 29. Witnesses said a sharpened toothbrush was used in the attack.

Back on Coventry Avenue, two police cruisers remained on the scene Tuesday.

Neighbours said a group of young men recently moved into one of the units in the red-brick house that’s at the centre of the police probe.

The duplex is outfitted with two surveillance cameras.
