London police: Officers arrested Dylan Brown after swooping in on east-end duplex Monday night

A London man wanted in a shooting north of Toronto was arrested in a raid on an east-end home after more than a week on the lam.

Neighbours say tactical officers with their weapons drawn surrounded a duplex at 12Coventry Ave., north of Highbury Avenue and Hamilton Road, about 8:30p.m. Monday - writes lfpress.

Dylan Brown, 24, was wanted on a Canada-wide arrest warrant in connection with an Aug.13 shooting outside a downtown Barrie bar that left a 28-year-old man seriously injured.

“We were assisting Barrie police with their investigation. He (Brown) was arrested here yesterday evening,” Const. Sandasha Bough said Tuesday.

Brown was turned over to Barrie police and appeared in court Tuesday on an attempted murder charge. He was remanded in custody pending a Monday court appearance.

The charge stems from a fight that reportedly started in a bar and spilled onto the street, where a man was shot by a suspect who fled in a vehicle that was later recovered, police said.

The victim, who hasn’t been publicly identified, was taken to hospital in Barrie with serious injuries before being transferred to Toronto-area hospital.

A second suspect, Barrie resident Max Pritchett, 21, also is charged with attempted murder, but remained at large Tuesday.

Police warned that Pritchett should be considered armed and dangerous, cautioning citizens not to approach him. He’s described as a white man with a medium build, five-foot-eight and 142pounds, with blond hair and blue eyes.

Barrie police also said Tuesday the fugitive’s father, Douglas Pritchett, is charged with being an accessory after the fact to attempted murder, possession for the purpose of trafficking and multiple gun-related offences.

Back on Coventry Avenue in London, two police cruisers remained on the scene Tuesday.

Neighbours said a group of young men recently moved into one of the two units in the red-brick house at the centre of the police probe. The duplex is outfitted with two surveillance cameras.

When contacted by The Free Press, the owner of the home said he had no knowledge of the previous night’s raid.

The owner, who doesn’t live in the duplex, also said he wasn’t aware cameras had been installed on the rental property.

Brown was previously charged with assault causing bodily harm and carrying a concealed weapon after a teenager was stabbed multiple times outside a Limberlost housing complex on Oct.29.
