65-Year-Old From Ontario Reportedly Shot At 13 Times After Waving At A Car To Slow Down
Police say he was out walking his dog.
A 65-year-old man is in critical condition after being shot several times in Schomberg, Ontario, police say.
According to a York Regional Police (YRP) press release, the man was simply walking his dog on Sunday morning when a speeding white SUV drove past him.
Police said he then gestured for the vehicle to slow down, and the SUV circled back before a passenger in the front seat opened fire and shot the man multiple times.
When cops arrived at the scene, they found the victim with "serious gunshot injuries." He was then immediately taken to the hospital.
The two suspects then fled the scene in a white SUV heading west on Centre Street and are currently still at large.
YRP released a video on Tuesday of the suspects fleeing the scene on Sunday morning to help find any leads from the public.
