TORONTO - A 35-year-old man is facing multiple charges after a shooting in a Toronto convenience store over the weekend.

Police allege that a man walked into the north Toronto store on Sunday, pointed a gun at an employee and asked for cash.

During the hold-up, the man allegedly shot a cigarette case with a handgun.

He then fled the scene without any cash.

Police say a suspect was arrested shortly afterwards by plainclothes officers.

Carlos Gomez, of Brampton, faces 11 charges including robbery while armed with a firearm, breaching probation, discharging a firearm and endangering life.
