WINDSOR, ONT – Police are looking for a person that is accused of shooting and injuring five men early Saturday morning during a fight outside of a Windsor bowling alley.

According to Windsor police, at about 1 a.m. on April 9, a group of about 20-25 people were fighting outside of a bowling alley on Tecumseh Road just east of Parent Avenue. Officials say that five men were shot during the altercation, and one of them was a bystander who was not involved in the disagreement.
