Man shot at up­scale Toronto steak­house

Toronto Star - - NEWS - ALEXANDRA JONES STAFF REPORTER

A man is in life-threat­en­ing con­di­tion af­ter be­ing shot in a res­tau­rant in the area of Sim­coe St. and Ade­laide St. W.

Po­lice ar­rived at the scene just be­fore 9 p.m. Saturday. The vic­tim was rushed to hos­pi­tal in life-threat­en­ing con­di­tion. Wit­nesses said there were four to five shots fired and that the shoot­ing took place within the res­tau­rant.

Me­dia re­ports from guests at the res­tau­rant iden­ti­fied it as Michael’s on Sim­coe, an up­scale steak­house that was the scene of an­other dra­matic shoot­ing al­most two years ago.

Po­lice said that shoot­ing, on Sept. 20, 2015, was a tar­geted act. Two masked men en­tered the res­tau­rant and opened fire, hit­ting a man and woman in their late 20s sit­ting at the back of the res­tau­rant, po­lice said at the time.

One sus­pect fled the scene on foot. Po­lice are look­ing for a man with a black hand­gun, pos­si­bly wear­ing a dark hoodie that may be grey. He was last seen head­ing west on Pearl St.
