Police were called to the Hurontario Street and Eglinton Avenue area around 9:30 p.m. Wednesday after a witness reported seeing a man shoot at a car before fleeing the scene. The two women inside escaped uninjured.

On Friday, police issued an arrest warrant for Steven John Northeim, 28, of Mississauga. He is facing twelve charges, including:
