Suspects on the Run in Oakville Shooting
One person is in handcuffs and two suspects are on the run in connection with an Oakville shooting which sent a 35-year-old man to hospital on Friday morning.
Emergency crews rushed to the scene along Cornwall Rd., east of Trafalgar Rd., at 9:30 a.m.
The shooting took place in the plaza right in front of Sunset Grill — that’s where the victim was before he was shot, a witness inside the restaurant tells inhalton.com.
Three men wearing black had hoods and masks on, the witness said, and fought with the victim before shooting him as he tried to run.
There were no gunshots heard, according to the witness.
The victim was treated by Halton paramedics and transported to hospital.
His condition is unknown, say Halton police.
A suspect fled on foot and was arrested near the scene. A vehicle linked to the shooting was also recovered, say police.
But two suspects remain at large.
The first suspect is described as male, black, with darker skin. He stands 6-feet, weighing 200 pounds, with a slim build. He was wearing dark, long pants and a dark shirt.
The second suspect is described as male, black, standing 5-foot-9 to 5-foot-10. His hair was in tight cornrows and he was possibly wearing white shorts, with an unknown colour/style of shirt.
Both men were last seen on foot.
Anyone with information is asked to phone the 2 District criminal investigation bureau at 905-825-4747 ext. 2216 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
