Wounded man faces charges in Overbrook shooting

Police investigating a daylight shooting in the Overbrook district Thursday have laid a string of firearms charges against a 24-year-old man who turned up at the hospital with gunshot wounds.

His injuries aren’t considered life-threatening.

Patrol officers were called to Queen Mary Street near Overbrook Park at about 4:04 p.m. by reports of a shooting and gathered descriptions of the people and vehicles involved.

Nearby, they arrested one man who remained in police custody for “investigative purposes” as of Friday.

Then police learned that a man had been dropped off at an unidentified hospital with gunshot injuries which police linked to the Overbrook shooting. The man was arrested in the hospital, where he remains in stable condition, police said.

Steve Percy is charged with unauthorized possession of a prohibited or restricted firearm, careless use of firearm, weapon, prohibited device or ammunition, pointing a firearm, possession of a weapon, possession of a loaded prohibited or restricted firearm, carrying a concealed weapon and possession of a firearm or ammunition while prohibited.

He was scheduled to appear in court by video link Friday.

Central district detectives continue to investigate and are looking at the possibility that others were involved, police said.

Anyone with information is asked to call the central criminal investigation unit at 613-236-1222, ext. 5166. Anonymous tips can be made to Crime Stoppers toll-free at 1-800-222-8477 or by downloading the Ottawa police app.
