An Oshawa man allegedly shot at another person after an argument last night.

The man and a person police did not describe got into an argument near Rideau St. and Anderson Ave. in central Oshawa shortly after 6 p.m. on Aug. 17. Durham Regional Police allege the man pulled a gun on the other party and fired at them.

The man then ran from the scene, police say, before hopping into a nearby car and taking off. Police were called and responded a short time later. They tracked a man down and pulled him over a short distance from the scene. Nobody was hurt in the incident.

Police arrested Noah Hurlock, 25 of Oshawa on 16 charges. He had already been prohibited from owning guns due to a previous conviction. The charges include;

  • Using a gun while committing a crime,
  • Firing a gun with intent to endanger life,
  • Recklessly firing a gun,
  • Assault with a weapon,
  • two counts of gun possession while prohibited,
  • two counts of breaking release conditions, and
  • two counts of breaking probation.

Hurlock remains in custody pending a bail hearing. Anyone with information can call police at 1-888-579-1520 ext. 2740 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
