GoFundMe launched for Nanaimo woman shot in the face while intervening in mental health crisis

April 6, 2021

shot.png
Regina Hampson has always been stunningly beautiful and her efforts on Saturday can only be described as heroic.

The 33-year-old Nanaimo mother was shot in the face after trying to intervene in a friend’s mental health crisis.
 
It happened at around 6 a.m. at a home on Groveland Drive when Hampson’s roommate became extremely depressed and grabbed a loaded 12 gauge shotgun with the intention of killing himself.

More on the Nanaimo shooting:

 

A Facebook post by Culley says Hampson came to the assistance of their roommate, who was attempting to take his own life on Saturday morning. During the encounter, Hampson was shot and may lose sight out of her right eye and could also possibly lose one of her thumbs.

 

Culley says they don’t believe the roommate meant any harm to his partner.

“Our friend was just that…our friend! We wish him peace and hope that this tragedy allows him to seek shelter from his deep depression,” the post reads. “I’m sorry we didn’t see this coming…. We know it wasn’t intentional and you were nothing but a great friend.”

Witness, Suspect Sought In Attack On Esquimalt Boy

April 7, 2021 - File: #21-13324

Victoria, BC – Patrol officers are alerting Esquimalt parents and asking for your assistance as we work to identify the suspect in an unprovoked attack on a 12-year-old Esquimalt boy on his way to school this morning.

The boy reported that between 8:00 and 8:30 a.m. this morning, he was riding his bike to school near the area of Devonshire and Fairview roads in Esquimalt when he was suddenly grabbed and pulled from his bike by a man he did not know. The boy reported falling to the ground and shielding his face as the man who pulled him from his bike stood over him and grabbed at his backpack.

The boy reported that a second person, believed to be a male, then pulled the first man away and ordered the boy to get back on his bike and leave the area. The boy fled and rode his bike directly to school. The boy was not physically harmed in the incident.

Officers were called by the boy’s family late this afternoon after they learned about the incident.

Esquimalt Division Patrol officers are looking to speak with the second man who intervened in the incident as they work to identify the man responsible.

Officers are also wanting to ensure that parents in the area are aware.

The boy was not able to describe either man and officers are currently in the area looking to identify witnesses.

A map showing the area where the incident occurred is below.

If you have information about this incident, please call the VicPD Report Desk at (250) 995-7654, extension 1. To report what you know anonymously, please call Greater Victoria Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

^ i do not want to be the mr. doubt guy.  but the above sounds a bit like a story a kid might make up to cover his absence/lateness or damage or loss to his backpack or clothes.  a story gone waaaaayy to wrong.  these type of things happen.

New grant program available for Victoria businesses affected by vandalism

 

Individual grants of up to $1,000 are available to any business that experiences vandalism between Jan. 1 and Dec. 31. To be eligible, businesses must submit proof of the insurance deductible amount, receipts for completed repair work and the police file number associated with the incident.

 

“We continue to look for ways we can support businesses impacted by the pandemic,” Victoria Mayor Lisa Helps said in a statement. “This new grant program is another way we can show our support and help ensure downtown remains open and inviting for everyone.”

...“We continue to look for ways we can support businesses impacted by the pandemic,” Victoria Mayor Lisa Helps said...

It's laughable that she uses the pandemic as an excuse. Businesses in the CoV have been experiencing vandalism long before March 2020. Try looking in the mirror Lisa if you want to see the real cause of increased crime in Victoria.

I had no idea that vandalism was caused by covid. Always appreciate the amazing facts our mayor shares with us.

So the messaging here is if you want to throw a rock through a window, go for it.  The city will cover the damage.
