Halton Regional Police Service have arrested two Oakville men after runners in an overnight relay race were robbed at gun point and shots were fired.

In the early morning hours, a male runner in the race was running West on Lakeshore Rd W in Oakville when he was confronted by two males. The two males demanded his wallet and money and showed him a hand gun before pushing him to the ground. Other runners who were approaching the incident attempted to intervene and assist the first victim.

One of the accused turned and threatened the other runners with the gun before he fired several shots at both runners. The one female victim was crazed across her nose by a pellet and luckily all the other shots missed. No medical treatment was needed.

The accused fled on foot and were located nearby by police. The firearm was determined to be a pellet gun.

All the victims were residents of the United States who were visting Ontario for the Relay Race. They all continued with the race.
