Provincial police are looking for a suspect, after a shooting in Ingersoll.
It happened just after the noon hour on Sunday, when police said a victim was heading for their pick up truck on Thames Street South, only to find someone inside.
Police said a verbal altercation turned physical, and the suspect inside shot the victim, causing serious but non-life threatening injuries.
The suspect stole a pick up truck, which was then involved in a crash at Cockshutt Road and Concession 2 of Townsend in Norfolk County. But police say the suspect flashed a firearm and stole the truck of a good samaritan that stopped by the crash scene.
That vehicle was later located, but the suspect remains at large.
"The suspect was described to police as a Caucasian male, 5'6 to 5'8, 150 to 170 lbs, 30 to 40's of age, pocked marked face with sunken cheek bones, dark eyes, brown unkempt hair with a goatee," police said in a release, "He was wearing a black coat with a hood, along with a hooded sweatshirt with both hoods pulled over his head."
Police said the man is considered armed and dangerous, and poses a threat to public safety.
