Earlier today…

On January 1, 2021 at 5:30 a.m. police responded to a report of a shooting in the 600 block of Albert Street West.

Upon arrival officers located a victim with non-life threatening injuries. This is believed to be an isolated incident and not a random act of violence.

Members of the Sault Ste. Marie Police Service are currently on scene as this is an active investigation.

We urge members of the community to avoid the area. Further details will be released as they become available.


  1. This is a shooting!!!
    Has an arrest been made?
    A press release should not appear to diminish or undermine the significance of this event because injuries are ‘non-life threatening’ OR the incident is ‘isolated’.
    It is a gun.
    It is a serious crime.
    It is in our community.
