A Selma man was sentenced to 12 years in prison after pleading guilty to first-degree assault in connection with a February 2012 shooting at Mr. Waffle.

Roderick James McGuire, 33, 729 Bradford Circle, Selma, accepted a plea deal in connection with the Mr. Waffle shooting that hospitalized one man.

The incident occurred when a man was shot while sitting in his truck at Mr. Waffle, according to police reports. The victim was transported to Vaughan Regional Medical Center shortly after with a bullet wound in his upper right arm and another injury where the bullet grazed his chest.

According to reports, the victim said he couldn’t think of a motive for the shooting.

While examining the victim’s truck, police found a bullet on the seat and a bullet fragment on the floor of the vehicle. McGuire later turned himself in for the incident.

District Attorney Michael Jackson said he is happy to have another criminal behind bars.

“Selma is not the wild, wild west,” Jackson said. “These gunslingers won’t even let people eat a waffle in peace.”
