HA Robert Barletta a hitman target - revisited

The date is March 30, 2020. Its possible the gunmen didn't recognize Barletta at first, who was sporting white sneakers, grey pants, a grey long-sleeved shirt and a black baseball cap as he passed the black Audi that had been parked on Ontario Street, just south of Gerard Street, for nearly four hours.

He unlatches the front-yard gate when two armed men spring from the vehicle. The first man gets out of the passenger seat and is holding guns in both hands as he runs toward Barletta. None of the nearly 20 shots fired hit their mark. No one was arrested.
Barletta’s narrow escape shows he has made dangerous enemies. It also raises questions about why cops have been tight-lipped about the incident. Its said Robert Bartletta has serious problems with rivals in his own group and rivals outside of the HAMC. Cops laid more gaming charges against Barletta and seven others, seizing another $24m of assets.
Barletta faced 15 charges including bookmaking, laundering proceeds of crime, fraud over $5,000 and commission of an offence for a criminal organization.
