Drive-bys? Are we in Compton?

An alleged drive-by shooting this past weekend occurred just north of downtown London.

A 21-year-old London male told police he was shot at once by a suspect in a dark coloured vehicle at 2 a.m. Sunday morning while walking to his car on the driveway of his St. James Street residence, according to Const. Ryan Holland of the London Police Department.

The bullet missed the man and the vehicle deserted the scene. No one was injured.

LPD are now looking for a dark coloured sedan, possibly with tinted windows.

They are also continuing to investigate a break and enter that occurred at the man's residence earlier last week and may be connected to the shooting.

A man convicted of manslaughter, considered to be at a high-risk to re-offend, has left London just a day after being released from custody, Holland said.

Darryl Cowles, 24, who served six years for the stabbing death of nine-year-old Rosalyn Dupuis near Sudbury, had taken up residence in a London motel, but was soon evicted when the owner learned of the his past.

Cowles returned to his home in Whitefish, Ontario to live with his mother.

The University Police Department is again urging pedestrians to take extra precautions in isolated areas after a suspicious male was reported entering the woods north of Brescia College. Officers searched the area, but were unable to find any suspects.
