Halton Police have confirmed that the man killed in a shooting in a Burlington strip mall was reputed Hamilton Mob boss Pasquale (Pat) Musitano. It was just a year ago that an attempt was made on his life after bullets were fired into his St. Clair Blvd. home. Musitano, 52, died after being gunned down Friday afternoon. A second shooting victim, believed to be Musitano’s bodyguard is in hospital in serious condition.
A third man is in hospital with undetermined injuries, The Spectator has learned.
Police were called to 484 Plains Rd. E., a plaza at King Road that houses several businesses, including Pro Patio Furniture, around 1 p.m.. Two men were found with gunshot wounds. Musitano died at the scene. His body was covered with a tarp.
Police said one male suspect fled the scene westbound on Plains Road East in a grey sedan. Police say they are looking for four-door grey sedan that is a newer model — similar to an Infiniti Q50 — with a sunroof. “This vehicle will have fresh damage to the driver’s side in the area of the door,” a news release said. “If you spot this vehicle, call police immediately.”
An unidentified witness said she heard about 10 shots and then the area was flooded with police,
