Cornwall, Ontario – Following a tumultuous biker gang confrontation over the weekend, local authorities have apprehended five individuals who now face charges. The incident took place in the vicinity of Vincent Massey Drive and 14th Street W, prompting a swift response from law enforcement at approximately 8:20 p.m.
An eyewitness the Seeker spoke to, whose identity remains anonymous for safety reasons, revealed that a group of three or four motorbikers had gathered near Cora’s. Suddenly, a separate contingent of eight to twelve individuals arrived on motorcycles, launching an immediate assault on the initial group.
Initially, three individuals were rushed to the hospital in stable condition, while multiple suspects were detained by police.
In a press release issued on Monday, authorities confirmed that two people had suffered stab wounds, while another was shot during the altercation. Fortunately, all three victims are expected to recover from their injuries.
The Cornwall Police Service announced the apprehension of five individuals, who now face appropriate charges. However, specific details regarding the arrests and charges are yet to be disclosed by the authorities.
Based on preliminary investigations, local law enforcement believes this incident to be a targeted clash between two rival biker gangs, namely the Outlaws and Loners. To aid in the inquiry, Cornwall police are collaborating with a specialized biker enforcement team at the provincial level.
In an unrelated development, an Outlaws clubhouse situated nearly 100 kilometers east in Brockville, Ontario, was engulfed in flames early Monday morning. Local police reported damage to eight to ten additional residential properties in the area. At present, authorities in both Cornwall and Brockville have refrained from drawing any connections between the two incidents, citing ongoing investigations and insufficient evidence.
