A man has serious injuries after being shot outside a steakhouse near Square One in Mississauga Monday evening.

It happened outside the main doors of Ruth's Chris Steak House located at City Centre Drive and Burnhamthorpe Road shortly before 8 p.m.

The circumstances surrounding the shooting were not immediately clear.

“We just heard the manager say to get out of the restaurant,” Marty Gaudet, who was in the restaurant at the time, told CP24 at the scene.

“By the time I got up, I saw a guy come in bleeding.”

The victim, believed to be in his early 20s, sustained two gunshot wounds, paramedics said. He was transported to hospital in serious, but stable condition.

Gaudet said he helped the man into the kitchen where he tried to help stop the bleeding prior to the arrival of paramedics. The man was shot in the arm and the leg, Gaudet said.

“He was panicking, calling for an ambulance, basically. He was asking for help.”

The suspect fled the scene in a grey vehicle, police said. No further suspect information was immediately provided.

Police continue to investigate at the scene.
