-- SCARBOROUGH -- A 22-year-old man was riddled with bullets in what is believed to be an attempted robbery as he sat in a car at a Malvern townhouse complex late last night.Mayor's office... yet again... strangely silent on which gun club the shooters belonged to.
But despite being shot as many as six times in the arms, chest and face, the victim is expected to survive.
UPDATE: Be careful what you wish for...
A 22-year-old Markham man may have been trying to buy a gun when he was riddled with bullets as he sat in a car at a Malvern townhouse complex Wednesday night.*
The victim, his brother and a friend were sitting in a Honda Accord in the visitor's parking lot at 50 Empringham Dr. -- a notoriously dangerous townhouse complex near Sewells Rd. and McLevin Ave. -- when they were suddenly surrounded by between seven and 10 men on foot, at least one of whom opened fire just after 10 p.m., police say.
Police sources allege the three drove south from York Region to the troubled neighbourhood in the northeast corner of Scarborough in the hopes of purchasing an illegal handgun.
