One person was rushed to hospital with serious injuries after a shooting Thursday night in Windsor’s Little Italy.
Police say a fight broke out sometime after 8pm and several men were fighting at the intersection of Erie Street East and Pierre Avenue.
Police confirmed Friday that a vehicle pulled up to the intersection and a male with a gun fired up to 5 rounds towards the front of a 4-unit apartment complex at the corner.
One man was hit by gunfire and police say two rounds struck a front window of the building.
The suspect then sped away.
When police arrived they found the victim actively bleeding from wounds to his arm and neck. He was lying on a concrete platform in front of the apartment building.
The shooting suspect is described as being male, Arabic or light skinned black. He was in his 20’s, approximately 5’6″ or 5’7″, with a skinny build. He was wearing a white shirt with black around the collar and around the sleeves at the cuff. He had a short “buzzed” haircut.
The suspect’s vehicle is described as being a black Pontiac Sunfire or a black Chevrolet Impala. The car has been described as being shiny black all over except the hood. The hood is described as having dull black paint.
Witnesses told police they remember seeing another male running in the alley from the scene in the area of Hall and Pierre. Police located the male and placed him under arrest as a person of interest in relation to the investigation. He was interviewed by detectives and was released without charges.
Police believe that another male may have been wounded in the shooting and may have left the scene in a vehicle.
Police do not believe that this was a random shooting. Police are asking anyone in the community with any information regarding this incident to call.
