Charges laid in summertime shooting

Shooting nets arrest warrant

Police have charged a Nanaimo man for shooting at a house.

The incident happened July 25 at about 4 a.m. when seven rounds were fired from an alley into the front door of a basement suite of a house at 621 Nicol St. No one was injured.

After an extensive investigation involving various Nanaimo RCMP units, police issued an arrest warrant Dec. 4 for Jeffery Ryan Oud, 36, of Nanaimo, on charges of mischief, endangering life and unlawfully discharging a firearm.

“Oud was identified as a person of interest in that file early on and after all the information was gathered – from witness statements and forensic evidence – we filed a report with the Crown and Crown saw fit to issue a warrant for his arrest,” said Const. Gary O’Brien, Nanaimo RCMP spokesman.

Oud turned himself in to Nanaimo provincial court Dec. 5 for a bail hearing.

Oud was released and is scheduled to make his next court appearance on Jan. 8.

Police are not releasing the reason why Oud allegedly shot at the house.
