Boy, 15, shot while sit­ting with friends in a car

The Hamilton Spectator - - CANADA & WORLD -

A 15-year-old Toronto boy is in hos­pi­tal fol­low­ing a shoot­ing in­ci­dent in Bramp­ton. Peel po­lice say they’re seek­ing the pub­lic’s as­sis­tance in iden­ti­fy­ing three sus­pects in the shoot­ing on Tues­day af­ter­noon. They say the boy was in a ve­hi­cle with friends when three peo­ple ap­proached, there was an ex­change of words, and one of the sus­pects pro­duced a hand­gun and shot the teen. The vic­tim was driven to a lo­cal hos­pi­tal and later trans­ferred to a trauma cen­tre in Toronto, where he is in sta­ble, non-life-threat­en­ing con­di­tion.
