One suspect is in custody after a 36-year-old man was shot at a townhouse in Thornhill early Friday morning, York Regional Police say.
Officers were called to a townhouse complex at 85 Henderson Street, near Steeles Avenue East, for reports of a shooting in the area.
When they arrived on scene, they located a 36-year-old man suffering from a gunshot wound.
He was rushed to hospital for treatment, and after undergoing surgery, he is expected to survive.
A 44-year-old suspect, who faces one count of attempted murder, was arrested at a townhouse in the area earlier this morning.
“There is a significant police presence in the area as officers continue to search for evidence,” York Regional Police said in a news release issued Friday.
“Investigators are seeking any witnesses who have not yet spoken to police to please come forward.”
Police also said Friday that investigators are searching for a person interest in the case but have not released a description.
