Brantford police are searching for two armed and dangerous men after a shooting in the city centre overnight Friday.

Officers responded to a shots fired call around 2:15 a.m. on Colborne Street near Bain, where they encountered a 25-year-old male suffering from gunshot wounds.

He was transported to hospital by paramedics with non-life-threatening injuries.

Investigators believe the incident was the result of a verbal argument that turned physical. It’s believed two men were at the centre of the confrontation when a third man arrived and shot the eventual victim.

Investigators have since identified the outstanding suspect as 30-year Andrew Steven Kreko. He’s described as five-feet-11-inches tall with short brown hair and brown eyes.

The other suspect, who has not yet been identified, is a male believed to be between 25 and 30 years old with long black hair and wearing a black leather jacket.
