THUNDER BAY - A Peterborough man charged with attempted murder was denied bail on Tuesday afternoon in a Thunder Bay courtroom.
Brandon Wayne Kelly, 27, appeared by video for his bail hearing on Tuesday, July 28, for charges related to a May shooting in the city. Kelly also faces various firearm-related charges in connection to the attempt homicide investigation.
On May 3, officers with the Thunder Bay Police Service were dispatched to the Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre after a man had crashed his vehicle into a barricade on the hospital’s property. Police learned the victim had suffered serious injuries as a result of a recent shooting.
Officers arrested Kelly's co-accused Terry Allen Pelto, 32, a day after the incident and then, Jacob Daniel Wattie, 24, nearly a week later.
All three men each face a charge of attempted murder as well as various firearm-related offences.
Two women, Natalie Salatino, 29, and Molly O’Brien, 29, were also arrested alongside Wattie and face a raft of firearm and drug trafficking-related offences.
Kelly has been in custody since his June 13 arrest. Because of a publication ban, details as to why Kelly has been detained following his bail hearing cannot be published.
His next court appearance will take place next month.
