Ottawa police were investigating a homicide Tuesday night after a young man was gunned down by a housing complex on Paul Anka Drive.

There were several reports of gun shots shortly after 8 p.m. and when police and paramedics arrived they administered CPR to a young man who was later pronounced dead.

Several teens — including friends of the victim — gathered across the street after the victim’s family called to say he had been shot.

It was not clear whether police had a suspect in custody or were hunting one down.

The police response was quick with multiple units — marked and unmarked — dispatched  to the crime scene.

Ottawa police were searching the city Tuesday night for a black truck in connection with the homicide.

It’s the city’s first homicide of 2018.
