One man is in hospital following a shooting in Mississauga on Wednesday night.

Peel police responded to a call around 11:30 p.m. for reports of shots fired in the area of Britannia Road and Douguy Boulevard.

A man was found suffering from gunshot wounds outside a busy bar.

He was taken to a trauma centre in stable but life-threatening condition.

There is no word on suspects at this time.

Police say it doesn’t look like the victim was involved in any sort of altercation inside the bar before the shooting.

The bar was packed with people watching the Raptors game and police are hoping witnesses to the shooting will come forward.
