The four men were reportedly having a drink, when Lee started to act in a strange manner, and allegedly used his hands to shove Forbes in his face.

Further reports are that Lee then moved towards Forbes who was still sitting down with a cup in his hand, pointed the weapon at him, and opened fire hitting him over seven times to his upper body.

Detectives went in search of the young businessman, and found him sitting inside his house. He was taken into custody by the police, and his licensed firearm seized.
The judge granted the crown 30 days to secure their witness and to return to court, where another bail application will be entered.
