Three of five suspects Chatham-Kent police say are tied to a Tuesday night shooting on Harvey Street in Chatham are in custody.

Police say thanks to the public’s assistance, Brianna Gardiner, 18, of Cambridge, Rylie DeJonge-Vandusen, 19, of London, and a 17-year-old Cambridge resident were all arrested with links to the shooting of two people about 6 p.m. Tuesday on Harvey Street.

The two people were taken to hospital, while a dog was killed. Police say a third person was shot at, but not hit in the confrontation.

Gardiner, arrested Jan. 27, is charged with three counts of attempted murder. She was held in custody pending a bail hearing and released with a future court date of Feb. 26.

DeJonge-Vandusen got cuffed two days later, and is also charged with three counts of attempted murder. She was held in custody pending a bail hearing and has been remanded with a future court date of Feb. 1.

That same day, the youth from Cambridge was also charged with three counts of attempted murder. He too is in custody pending the Feb. 1 bail hearing.

Police continue to look for a 19-year-old man and 17-year-old youth. Both are also wanted for three counts of attempted murder. Officers believe they have ties to communities outside of Chatham-Kent.

Police say if you know their whereabouts, you are to call 911 immediately.

The incident remains under investigation. Anyone with information is asked to contact Const. Cole Abbott at colea@chatham-kent.ca or 519-380-6024. Anonymous callers may call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) and may be eligible for a cash reward.
