Mobster Pat Musitano released from hospital after shooting
Head of infamous crime family was gunned down last month
Hamilton mobster Pat Musitano has been released from hospital after being gunned down in a Mississauga parking lot last month.
The reputed head of the city's infamous Musitano crime family was originally rushed to hospital in critical condition on the morning of April 25 after he was shot multiple times outside his lawyer's office.
Peel police confirmed Wednesday that Musitano had been released from hospital. They offered no further details.
The attack on his life was the latest blow suffered by the crime family, as violence linked to organized crime has surged in Hamilton and across Southern Ontario in recent years.
Musitano's brother, Angelo, was gunned down in the driveway of his Waterdown, Ont., home nearly just over 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.
