Mobster Pat Musitano expected to survive multiple shooting
Head of infamous crime family was gunned down last week
Infamous mob scion Pat Musitano is expected to survive being shot multiple times outside his lawyer's office in Mississauga last week.
The 51-year-old is no longer in critical condition, said Const. Bancroft Wright of Peel police.
"His condition is improving, he is no longer considered to be in life-threatening condition," Wright said.
Wright would not comment on the extent of Musitano's injuries, nor how long he is expected to remain in hospital.
This attack marks the latest black mark against the crime family, as violence linked to organized crime has surged in Hamilton and Southern Ontario in recent years.
Musitano's brother, Angelo, was gunned down in the driveway of his Waterdown, Ont., home nearly two years ago on May 2, 2017.
A Hamilton man is facing a murder charge in connection with his death. Two other suspects are wanted on Canada-wide warrants, but police believe they may have fled to Mexico.
Weeks after his brother was killed, Pat Musitano's home on St. Clair Boulevard was also shot up.
Other recent mob-related deaths in Hamilton include Cece Luppino, the son of mobster Rocco Luppino, and Albert Iavarone, who police say had connections to organized crime.
