Two men from Ajax have been charged with attempted murder after a shooting outside a bar in Pickering last month.

Durham regional police were called to the Island Mix bar at Bayly Street and Brock Road around 2:15 a.m. on July 20.

Police believe the suspects were sitting in a parked car outside of the bar. When the victim walked by, the three men got into an argument which turned physical and shots were fired.

The victim was rushed to hospital with a serious to life-threatening gunshot wound. Police say he continues to recover from his injuries.

Police said Daniel Lewis, 24, and Phillip Fullerton, 24, were arrested this week.

Both men are also facing multiple firearm related charges and assault charges.
