Witnesses to bar shooting asked to come forward

Durham Police investigators are releasing surveillance images of two males who they believe are responsible for a shooting that occurred Friday night in Pickering.

On May 11, police asked for previous posted images to be removed from circulation.

On May 5 at about 11:30 pm, members from West Division responded to The Harp and Crown Pub located at 300 Kingston Road Unit 9 in Pickering after receiving information that a fight was taking place inside the bar.

During the altercation one male sustained a gunshot wound and was taken to a Toronto-area trauma centre where he is listed in serious but stable condition, said a police statement.

After reviewing surveillance video and speaking with witnesses, investigators have been able to determine that there are two suspects who are responsible for this incident.

Suspect #1: male, Black, early 20’s, thin build, possibly had braided hair and was wearing a black sweatsuit with light stripes on the sides.

Suspect #2: male, Black, approximately 25 years old, short hair, chin-strap style facial hair.

Police are appealing to anyone who was inside the bar at the time of the altercation and may have any information to come forward. Any witnesses with cellphone video are also encouraged to come forward and speak with investigators.

Anyone with new information about this incident is asked to contact Det. MacKinnon or Det. Smith of the West Division Criminal Investigations Bureau at 1-888-579-1520 ext. 2529 or 2528.

Earlier, police reports said the victim is 22-year-old. At this time this appears to be an isolated incident, they said.
