A man faces charges in connection with a shooting last week in Fairview.
On April 14 at 1:25 p.m., police responded to a shooting at a business on Titus Street. Officers located a 41-year-old man at the scene suffering from a gun shot injury and he was taken to hospital with non life-threatening injuries. A second man, 23, arrived at the hospital a short time later with a gun shot injury that is believed to have occurred at the Titus Street location. This was not a random incident and investigators believe that the 23-year-old man was the intended target, however, the 41-year old man was an innocent bystander.
