TORONTO — Police in Toronto have made two arrests in a firearms investigation that followed what they call a “heated argument” outside a bar.
It started early Saturday, when police say there was an “altercation” outside a “licensed establishment” on the city’s northwest side (near Finch Avenue West and Hwy. 27).
In a statement Saturday evening, police say the two suspects were “found to be in joint possession of a firearm and discharged two rounds into a group of people.”
No one was hurt in the incident, and police say they recovered a semi-automatic pistol and 30 rounds of ammunition.
Inderpaul Flora, 39, of Toronto faces a number of weapons charges, including two counts of discharging a firearm being reckless as to life or safety of another and possession of a firearm obtained by crime.
Justin Singh, 18, also of Toronto was arrested for possessing a loaded regulated firearm and possessing a restricted or prohibited firearm and possessing a firearm obtained by crime.
Police say they appeared in court Saturday morning. They’re urging anyone who witnessed the shooting or recorded video of the incident to contact them.
