TORONTO — Police are now treating the suspicious death of a man in Kitchener who was shot and killed by an arrow in the chest on Monday morning as a homicide.

Waterloo Regional Police said 60-year-old Michael Gibbon suffered life-threatening injuries after being struck by an arrow in the Margaret Avenue and Union Street area of Kitchener at about 7 a.m.

Paramedics transported the man to hospital where he later died of his injuries.

Police said the injuries were not believed to be self-inflicted after an autopsy was conducted on Tuesday.

Police have devoted significant resources to the investigation and are “working around the clock to collect information and determine evidence.”

A canvass of the neighbourhood was conducted Monday with additional canvasses planned throughout the week, with residents warned to expect an increased police presence.

Officers have reportedly received significant information as a result and police said they are following up on each lead.

“We are thankful to the community for the information received so far as incidents like this create anxiety,” said Chief Bryan Larkin in a release.

“There are people who have information that can assist us in solving this incident, and we are pleading for them to come forward.”

Police said the motivation for this attack is unknown and are “not ruling out any possibility.”

The risk to public safety has still not been determined but police are warning residents to “remain vigilant, be aware of their surroundings and are asked to report any suspicious activity to police.”

Police continue to appeal to the public for any information that may assist in this investigation and ask them to call Waterloo Regional Police at 519-653-7700 ext. 8666 or Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
