Hamilton mobster Pat Musitano shot in Mississauga, Ont. Notorious Hamilton mobster Pat Musitano has been shot. It happened in Mississauga, Ont., Thursday morning. He was rushed to a trauma centre where he remains in life-threatening condition, police said. Peel police would not confirm the man's identity, but Shahid Malik, a lawyer who shares the office where the shooting took place, said Musitano was there to meet with his lawyer, Joseph Irving. "I hope Mr. Musitano is OK," Malik told CBC News. "It's very concerning, very upsetting, very unnerving." Peel police said at a news conference that the victim was shot multiple times outside his vehicle.

Hamilton mobster Pasquale (Pat) Musitano is expected to survive, after being shot multiple times outside his lawyer’s office in Mississauga last week.

The 51-year-old is improving, Peel police Const. Bancroft Wright said Wednesday morning.

“He’s no longer considered to be in life-threatening condition,” Wright said.

The shooting is considered attempted murder and is being investigated by Peel’s criminal investigations bureau. While it appears Musitano will survive, it’s unclear what lasting damage the shooting will cause.

Shooting of Pat Musitano the latest in a deadly string of mob-related violence

Shooting of Pat Musitano the latest in a deadly string of mob-related violence Pat Musitano, reputed scion of the Hamilton crime family that shares his name, was shot Thursday after reportedly leaving a meeting with his lawyer. He remains in life-threatening condition. The attack is a direct blow to the once-mighty Musitano family and follows years of underworld turmoil that experts and investigators say has recently boiled over in Hamilton and other areas of the GTA, leading to a spate of killings. Many questions remain about the underworld power struggle, but experts say this shooting reveals just how weakened the Musitano family has become in a few short years.

Infamous mob scion Pat Musitano is expected to survive being shot multiple times outside his lawyer's office in Mississauga last week. 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

The 51-year-old was shot as many as four times, including to the head, around 7 a.m. April 25 outside the office of lawyer Joseph Irving at 120 Matheson Blvd. E., near Whittle Rd. Irving had been acting for Musitano in connection with a paving and construction company allegedly embroiled in a multimillion-dollar scam.

It is unclear if the location at his lawyer’s office, and Musitano’s ties with Havana Group Supplies, has any connection to the shooting.

Pat Musitano is the reputed boss of the Musitano crime family — one of the original traditional organized crime groups that vied for power in Hamilton in the 1960s. Pat Musitano took control when his father, Dominic Musitano, died in 1995.

Here’s how a wiretap recorded a conversation about getting rid of Pat Musitano

Here’s how a wiretap recorded a conversation about getting rid of Pat Musitano HAMILTON—Someone wants Pasquale (Pat) Musitano dead — that much is clear. But why was the 51-year-old Hamilton mob boss, who remains in hospital with “life-threatening” injuries, shot outside his Mississauga lawyer’s office early Thursday morning? The targeted shooting comes amid a string of Mafia hits, so perhaps the biggest question is: why now? Wiretap conversations recorded as part of the prosecution against Domenico (Dom) and Giuseppe (Joe) Violi revealing the plan to target the Musitano boss stretch back at least to the fall of 2017, months after the May 2 shooting death of Pat’s younger brother, Angelo (Ang) Musitano, in Waterdown.

The shooting comes amid a resurgence in mafia violence in Hamilton and surrounding communities in recent years, including the May 2, 2017 shooting death of Pat’s younger brother, Angelo (Ang) Musitano, in Waterdown.

Pat Musitano’s own St. Clair Blvd. home was sprayed with bullets weeks later in what was widely seen as a warning.

Since then two other men whose families have mob ties have been gunned down in Hamilton — Albert Iavarone and Cece Luppino.

And two brothers from the only other long-standing traditional organized crime family in Hamilton — Domenico (Dom) and Giuseppe (Joe) Violi — are in prison serving sentences for drug trafficking.

The Spectator reported last week that wiretap conversations captured in September 2017 as part of the Violi brother case revealed a conversation about taking out Pat Musitano.

With all the ongoing violence and court cases, it’s difficult to understand who still holds power within Hamilton’s criminal underworld.

Police sting revealed plans for gangland hits on Musitano family Just months after Angelo Musitano was gunned down in his driveway, a fellow convicted mobster was caught on tape musing that Musitano’s brother, Pat, would be next. He was right. Pat Musitano was shot several times in front of his lawyer's office in Mississauga late last week. Peel Regional Police confirmed Monday morning that the 51-year-old is still alive in a Toronto-area hospital and in critical condition.

With the attempt on Pat Musitano’s life, those still tied to the family now face the “ultimate test of allegiance,” said Stephen Metelsky, a criminology professor at Mohawk College who spent 21 years with Halton police, including specializing in organized crime.

He was involved in the early days of Project Otremens — the case against the Violi brothers in which a paid police agent managed to infiltrate the mob in New York City. Metelsky retired before the case’s conclusion and now writes about organized crime on underworldstories.com.

He says he can count maybe a handful of known supporters close the Musitanos and questions what they are doing now.

“There is shelf life in the underworld, (mobsters) have an expiration date,” he said. “Usually in by the gun, out by the gun.”

So who is left? While there are Musitano family members, few are known for being involved in the family business and many are dead.

The Mississauga shooting came just a day after the funeral for Pat’s uncle Tony Musitano — a former mobster who was said to still command respect. Pat was not seen at his uncle’s funeral.
