Man shot at upscale Toronto steakhouse
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.
