Ottawa police investigating after man killed in Orleans shooting

Ottawa police are investigating the fatal shooting of a man in Orleans Wednesday night.

Emergency crews responded to a call in the area of Oaklawn Crescent, near Tenth Line Road and Charlemagne Boulevard, at approximately at 9:15 p.m.

The Ottawa police Duty Inspector said on X, the platform formerly known as Twitter, that a man died in the area.

“One person was arrested during the investigation and is in custody,” police said.

An Ottawa paramedic spokesperson tells CTV News Ottawa paramedics responded to a call for a man with gunshot wounds in the area of Tenth Line and Charlemagne.  Paramedics transported the victim to hospital in life-threatening condition.

No other information has been released.

Resident Nick Iraci says he heard a “pretty intense” police presence in the neighbourhood just after 9 p.m.

“We could see the police going up and down Tenth Line….it seemed like maybe they were chasing someone but we weren’t exactly sure,” Iraci said.

Iraci tells CTV News Ottawa he didn’t hear any gun shots last night.

This is Ottawa’s 13th homicide of 2023.
