Police and Niagara EMS were called yesterday to the parking lot of Whiskey Nick’s Texas Bar & Grill located at 7184 Drummond Rd. for reports of a shooting where they found a 49 year old male suffering from gunshot wounds.


Police say a search of the area failed to turn up the suspect, nor did they find a weapon.  However, as a result of  an investigation, detectives have developed reasonable grounds to believe 26 year old Joseph Douglas Minty of Niagara Falls is responsible for the shooting. The victim in the meantime was transported to a local hospital and then air lifted by Ornge to an out of region hospital with non-life threatening injuries.


In the latest update to the case police now say that an arrest warrant will be sought for Minty today for the alleged offence of attempted murder.  Minty should be considered armed and dangerous.

Anyone having the ability to communicate with Minty should also encourage him to contact a lawyer to arrange for his peaceful surrender.This investigation remains ongoing by 2 District Niagara Falls detectives. Anyone with information is asked to contact them at 905-688-4111 extension 9470.
