The shooting took place outside the Red House Bar and Grill, near O’Connor Drive and St. Clair Avenue, in the early morning hours of Oct. 13, after five people got into an argument.
During the scuffle, police allege one of the men pulled out a gun and shot another man three times, resulting in non-life threatening injuries.
A .22 calibre revolver was recovered at the scene.
