OPP Looking For Suspect In Clinton ShootingSeptember 19, 2014 9:33am
The OPP is looking for a 70-year-old suspect in the shooting death of a Caledon East man north of Clinton.
There is a Canada wide warrant out for Boris Panovski of Scarborough in the shooting death of 70-year old Donato Frigo. Panovski is described as 5’7″, 200 lbs, with brown hair, blue eyes, but may have changed his appearance.
Last Saturday, Frigo was shot and killed at the Hullett Wildlife Area while participating in a hunting dog competition.
A woman was also injured in the shooting and the victims and the suspect were known to each other. The woman, who’s relationship with Frigo has yet to be established, is recovering and her whereabouts are being withheld for her protection.
OPP Detective Superintendent Dave Truax spoke at today’s news conference in Vaughn about the investigation.
“Panovski is wanted for murder and one count of attempted murder. Although the photograph of the accused provided is believed to be accurate, he may have since changed his appearance,” says Truax. “We have reason to believe that Panovski may be armed and should be considered dangerous.”
Police have already collected evidence after tapping into the Toronto Police Service for help.
“As a result of that, we were able to execute search warrants on Wednesday evening,” says Truax. “The exhibits that have been seized as part of those search warrants have been brought to the centre of forensic sciences and, as of today, we have a warrant for this individual’s arrest.”
Police are also looking for a blue 1998 Toyota four-door sedan.
The OPP has set up a dedicated phone line to handle any calls regarding the investigation at 1-844-278-4794.
