Shooting victim fighting for life
A shooting in Vaughan has left a man fighting for his life.
Police found a man with a gunshot wound to the abdomen when officers answered a call in the Steeles Ave. W.-Weston Rd. area around 2:30 a.m. Sunday.
The victim was rushed to a hospital, where he remains in serious condition.
Police have said they are trying to pinpoint the location where the shooting took place, since it does not appear to have happened where the victim was found.
A police presence was focused on Steeles Ave., outside the Cameo Lounge, near Scholes Rd.
