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.
The shooting suspect then fled the scene in a four-door silver Mercedes and drove at high speed out of town on Highway 403, detectives say.
Officers pursued the vehicle but discontinued minutes later after the action was considered a risk to public safety, according to police.
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.
Police say neither of the suspects should be approached and both are considered extremely dangerous. Police advise calling 911 if seen.
