Toronto man shot during robbery

A man was shot in the arm outside a north Toronto nightclub early Thursday morning.

The shooting happened just after 2 a.m. just after the 19-year-old left a party at a banquet hall on Arrow Road, near Finch Avenue West and Highway 401.

Police say the victim was approached by a group of males who stole a gold chain and then shot him.

He was taken to hospital for treatment.

Police say he is expected to recover from his injuries.
