Suspect arrested in Burlington shooting
Two people in a car were shot at in a Burlington motel parking lot late Tuesday morning, in what Halton police are calling a “targeted incident.”
No one was hurt, but the car was hit with what Halton police said was a “single gunshot” outside the Motel 6, at 4345 North Service Rd., around 11:30 a.m.
Officers were called to the scene, but found both the victims and the suspect, believed to be a lone man, had already fled in separate vehicles. At approximately 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, a suspect was located in Hamilton and arrested without incident. The vehicle that was shot at was found abandoned a few kilometres away at Mainway and Dillon Road.
Police ask anyone with information to call Burlington detectives at 905-824-4747 ext. 2316.
The targeted car, shot at the Motel 6, was found in the parking lot of 1221 Mainway on Tuesday afternoon.
