Toronto police investigate six separate shootings in under 12 hours's Profile


It was another busy Friday for Toronto police, as officers responded to six shooting calls in less than 12 hours.

In the bloodiest incident, officers say five people were shot near Jane Street and Woolner Avenue, just north of St. Clair Avenue West.

All five were rushed to hospital, with one of them fighting for his life.

A heavy police presence could be seen and heard around the neighbourhood, but no arrests have been announced.

Witnesses reported seeing a black SUV speeding away from the crime scene.

Earlier in the day, another man was shot just outside of the Scarborough Town Centre.

Investigators say he was taken to hospital in serious condition.

There’s no official word on any arrests, but officers say they’re looking for a dark coloured SUV.

Around 4 p.m., police were called about an apparent drive-by shooting near Don Mills Road and Eglinton Avenue East.

No one was hurt, but a vehicle was found nearby, riddled with bullet holes.

Officers located a number of crime scenes and shell casings.

Police are searching for the shooter, described as a Black man behind the wheel of a black SUV.

There were also no apparent victims of a shooting near Victoria Park Avenue, north of St. Clair.

However, officers say someone shot at a residential home and found a parked vehicle filled with bullet holes.

Yet again, investigators are hunting for a black SUV and two men who were wearing masks.

There also was a large group reported firing guns at a vehicle on Kipling Avenue, south of Steeles.

Investigators say six or seven shooters fired at a vehicle that took off.

No reported injuries and, once again, no word on any arrests.

Finally, a shooting was reported around 1:22 a.m. in a neighbourhood close to Lawrence Avenue East and the DVP.

Officers didn’t find any victims, but did find more shell casings.

No official word on any suspects.
