The shooting occurred outside a busy bar and several people witnessed the carnage.
“Me and my buddy were sitting in a truck and some guy came biking past and we were like ‘alright, whatever, no big deal’ but as we watched him go we saw him take a shot at the guy,” one witness at the scene told CP24. “He shot him three times.”
The victim was taken to St. Michaels Hospital, where he remains.
