Durham police have made an arrest in connection with a shooting that took place in Oshawa in August 2020.
Officers were called to a disturbance on Frederick Mason Drive in Oshawa on Friday, Aug. 28.
A 23-year-old man reported arriving home just before 4 a.m. when he was approached by several unknown men who assaulted him and tried to take his jewelry and shoes.
