Last Night Was A Disaster In North York After A Homicide, Shooting, TTC Crash & Fire
All stories are developing.
There were four separate incidents keeping police busy in North York last night. The first is now a homicide investigation, while the second was another Toronto shooting. A TTC bus then collided with a motorcycle, leaving a man with critical injuries, and a fire in an apartment building happened around midnight to top the night off. The news about these incidents is still developing, but here is what we know so far.
The first incident happened at a parkette around Jane and Wilson at 9:12 p.m., where first responders were called after an alleged assault left one person dead.
Police are staying pretty tight-lipped about the whole thing because it is an ongoing investigation. They would not say if there was a weapon involved or the victim's details, but 680 News reported that a man is in custody.
Then, around 11 p.m., a man was shot in the calf while at a playground at Black Creek Drive and Weston Road. He has serious injuries, according to CP24, but they are non-life-threatening. Police also have no suspect information at this time.
Around the same time, 11 p.m., there was a reported collision between a TTC bus driver and a motorcyclist at Weston Road and Rogers. The motorcyclist, a man in his 40s, is in critical condition, and it is still unclear if charges will be laid. The accident happened when the motorcyclist was heading north on Weston, and the driver of the southbound bus tried to turn onto Rogers Road, crossing the northbound lanes, 680 News reports.
The final incident was a fire at around midnight at a building at 1577 Lawrence Avenue West. The smoke was visible from the 7th floor of the building, and crews located a man who was suffering from smoke inhalation. First responders took him to the hospital in critical condition in the early hours of this morning.
