One man has been charged after a man was shot near the ROMA Confectionary on Rochester Street on Feb. 16.

Police say active witness participation by community members lead to the quick arrest of a 34-year-old man.

Officers found the 52-year-old male victim at the corner of Willow and Rochester streets around 2 p.m. with a gunshot wound.

Shortly after, the snow on the steps leading into the ROMA Confectionary could been seen stained with blood and with what appeared to be clothing and a boot still left on the stairs.

The man was transported to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries as front line and tactical officers were sent to both Rochester Street and the 2000 block of Jasmine Crescent.

Between the two locations, three men were taken into custody. Two were released, and a 34-year old male was charged with use of a firearm/commit indictable offence, use, handling or storage of a firearm carelessly, pointing a firearm, possession of a weapon dangerous to public peace, carrying a concealed weapon, possession of a loaded regulated firearm, and discharge of a firearm reckless as to the life or safety of another person.

Police said their investigation is continuing.
