Police are searching for a lone gunman after three men were wounded in a shooting outside a Woodbridge sports bar late Monday night.
It happened on Highway 7, east of Pine Valley Drive, at around 11:30 p.m.
Officers were called to the 90 Minute Sport Bar after a receiving a report of shots fired. When they arrived on scene, they found three men suffering from gunshot wounds.
Police say they believe a suspect, armed with a long gun, approached the men who were standing outside the sports bar and began firing.
The male suspect then fled the area on foot.
The victims, identified by police as a 29-year-old Toronto man, a 33-year-old Toronto man, and a 47-year-old Vaughan man, were transported to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
Investigators say they believe the shooting was targeted.
On Tuesday morning, York Regional Police confirmed one victim had been released from hospital. The two others are still receiving treatment.
The suspect has not yet been apprehended and a detailed suspect description has not yet been released.
Police say they believe there is no risk to public safety.
Anyone who witnessed the shooting or was in the area at the time is asked to contact police at 1-866-876-5423, ext. 7441.
“What we really need now though is the public’s help. We need people to come forward. We know there were people in the area at the time. If you haven’t spoken to our investigators yet, we need you to come forward and tell us some more information about what you saw,” Pattenden said.
