Two injured in road-rage shooting near Toronto´s Yonge-Bloor

Ottawa, Jul 10 (Prensa Latina) A shooting in downtown Toronto that sent two people to hospital with serious injuries Monday morning could be the result of road rage following street racing, police said as they worked to identify those responsible.

Toronto police said they were called to 7 Charles St. West, just one block south of Toronto’s busy Yonge and Bloor intersection, just after 6 a.m. for what they described as a drive-by shooting.

Duty Insp. Michelle Olszevski said officers arrived to find a man and a woman in their 20s suffering from gunshot wounds. They were taken to nearby trauma centers where they were in serious but non-life-threatening condition hours later.

Before the shooting, police got a call about stunt driving taking place on Yonge Street shortly before 6 a.m., Olszevski said.

“The vehicles and occupants of the vehicles involved in this stunt driving call were also in front of 7 Charles St. at the time of this shooting,” she said.

“There is a possibility that this incident has occurred as a result of a road rage.”
