Provincial police are investigating a shooting that occurred Thursday afternoon in Victoria Harbour, east of Midland, that has left the victim with life-threatening injuries.

"Just after 2:00 p.m. on August 17, 2023, members of the Southern Georgian Bay Detachment of Ontario Provincial Police (OPP), Simcoe County Paramedics and Tay Township Fire Department responded to reports of gunshots outside of a residence on Maple Street in the Township of Tay. Officers located one person suffering from apparent gunshot wounds. That person was transported by Ornge air ambulance to a Toronto-area trauma centre with life-threatening injuries," police said in a news release on Thursday afternoon.

A source told Barrie 360 that the victim is a male and the owner of a pizza shop on Park Avenue.

In a tweet on Thursday afternoon, police said there would be a heavy police presence in the area of Maple Street and Park Avenue.

Police could not comment if Thursday's gunplay is connected to a shooting that happened inside a Maple Street home on Canada Day.

In that incident, a person suffered minor injuries.

At the time, police said the shooter was a male.

In both the Canada Day case and the most recent shooting, investigators said they believe this to be an isolated incident and there is no immediate threat to public safety.
