The suspect car caught on video.

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.

According to CTV News Toronto, the man was shot at a total of 13 times,* and YRP spokesperson Sgt. Clint Whitney told the outlet the attack appears to be "completely random."

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.

"As far as we know, this individual was just out for a walk with his dog. There's nothing that I can see that would have explained why this would have occurred," Constable Laura Nicolle told Narcity on Wednesday.

"It is very concerning."

Police are investigating the attack, and the victim's family is pleading for anyone with information to come forward.

Anyone with information about this case is urged to contact investigators at 1-866-876-5423 ext. 7141 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
