The investigation continues into an East Windsor shooting that happened late Wednesday.
Police say that around 5:30pm a call came in for a fight in the 3900 block of Tecumseh Road East.
While officers were enroute information was received that gunshots had been heard, and that one of the involved males had been shot.
Several units converged on the scene. A crime scene was contained at the front of a business at this location. Tecumseh Road East was closed between Tourangeau Road and Aubin Road.
Investigation determined that the pair met up by chance that day inside a business. They exchanged words over a longstanding dispute, then exited the business and became involved in a physical altercation. During the altercation, a firearm was produced and the victim was shot.
The victim, a 35-year-old male was taken to hospital and received treatment in hospital for non-life threatening injuries to his hand and abdomen.
Officers quickly located a male matching the physical description provided by both the victim and witnesses. He also had minor injuries consistent with being involved in a physical altercation. The male was arrested without incident.
The arrested male, a 42-year-old male from Windsor, was found to be in possession of a small amount of suspected methamphetamine as well as a prohibited knife.
Numerous witnesses reported observing the suspect throw an item into a white pick-up truck that had been driven away prior to police arrival.
At approximately 6pm officers located a vehicle matching this description parked in the 2300 block of George Avenue. Officers further observed what appeared to be blood on portions of the exterior of the truck, as well as suspected bullet holes.
The vehicle was secured and then taken into police custody.
Investigators are seeking judicial permission to search the vehicle.
