The investigation began after a man, 20, arrived in hospital with what appeared to be a gunshot wound just after 11 p.m. April 22.

At the time, police said he was listed in serious but non-life-threatening condition and that no suspect description was available.

On May 3, police reported that investigators have determined that the victim was shot inside an apartment building on Dundas Street, east of Adelaide Street, and that “this was not a random incident.”

Police also told Global News that the victim has since been released from hospital.

Police say a search warrant was executed at a Dundas Street residence on April 23, the day after the shooting, and officers seized roughly $4,500 worth of drugs including 28.75 grams of suspected cocaine, 4.2 grams of suspected fentanyl, capsules of suspected morphine, and more, as well as four scales.
