A suspect has been identified in last fall’s shooting at an Oshawa bar that sent a victim to hospital with serious injuries.

Gunfire ran out inside Whiskey John’s, a pub at 843 King St. W., shortly before midnight on October 9, according to Durham Regional Police. Officers responded soon after and found a victim suffering a serious but not life-threatening gunshot wound.

Paramedics rushed the victim to Sunnybrook Hospital in Toronto.

Police remained at the scene for several hours to investigate. However, at the time they made the shooting public, they had no suspect description or information.

That changed by Jan. 26 when police announced they had identified a suspect.

An arrest warrant is out for Isan Murley, 30 of Oshawa, on 12 charges including; firing a gun with intent to harm, carrying a concealed weapon, possession of a loaded restricted gun and aggravated assault.

Anyone with information about Murley’s whereabouts can call D/Cst. Stuart at 1-888-579-1520 ext. 1829 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
