Toronto police have arrested and charged a 32-year-old man with attempted murder — along with a series of other charges — in connection with a shooting earlier this month that sent a 39-year-old man to hospital with serious injuries.
The incident happened around 10:30 p.m. on Sept. 9 at the Crowne Plaza Toronto Airport hotel, near Highway 27 and Dixon Road.
The two men got into an argument, before one produced a gun and shot the other, Toronto police said in a press release Tuesday.
Emergency crews found the victim with a gunshot wound to his abdomen. He was transported to hospital in serious condition, Insp. Norm Proctor said at the time of the shooting.
The suspect was arrested and is now facing 16 charges, including attempted murder, failing to comply with a prohibition order, and possession of a loaded firearm.
He is set to appear in a Toronto courtroom Monday at 10 a.m.
