- Jordan Tobin stays at an apartment building on Thorburn Road that took heavy gunfire early Thursday morning.
Jordan Tobin ran upright from his sleep when he heard a loud boom in the early hours of Thursday morning.
Then he heard another one. And another. And almost a half-dozen more after that.
When the loud blows suddenly gave way to the screeching tires of a fleeing vehicle, Tobin dashed from his bedroom to the lobby next door.
“There were shots everywhere. Glass everywhere. Holes everywhere. Just not a scene you want to walk into at the entrance of your apartment building,” Tobin said.
He headed back to his apartment, held his phone placed a 911 call at about 2:45 a.m.
“I called the police instantly and described precisely what happened [, and] told them they must get here as soon as possible,” Tobin said.
Tobin said nobody showed up till after 6 a.m — almost 3½ hours after he placed the first call.
Const. James Cadigan, the representative for the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary, said police got some calls about “noises consistent with gunshots” in the region at 2:45 a.m. but found only a burning car nearby.
