Toronto Police were in for a busy night on Tuesday after multiple shootings were reported across the city. At 10:45 p.m. officers were called to the intersection of Grandravine Drive and Driftwood Avenue for reports of a drive-by shooting in Toronto. The incident led to two boys being taken to a nearby hospital with serious injuries.
According to the Toronto Police, while their injuries are serious, both boys appear to be in non-life threatening condition.
While police have yet to reveal the ages of the two victims, CBC reports that they were 15 years old.
Police believed the suspect vehicle fled south. However, a description of the car has yet to be released by authorities. Several shell casings were also discovered near the roadway.
CTV reported that police responded to another gunfire-related call 30 minutes after discovering the injured boys.
According to police, the incident occurred at the Don Valley Parkway and Eglinton Avenue Area.
A vehicle riddled with bullet holes was discovered at the scene, although no injuries were reported.
A third shooting later took place around 11:30 p.m. at Kennedy Road and Eglinton Avenue.
Police arrived on the scene to discover a male victim suffering from a gunshot wound. He was taken to the hospital with serious injuries.
Police reported that the victim has refused to cooperate with the investigation.
Toronto police also reported a potential fourth shooting after an individual walked into Sunnybrook hospital with a non-life threatening gunshot injury.
However, it is unclear if this victim was connected with any of the incidents that were reported throughout the night.
Back in March, police reported that all major crimes in the city had declined due to COVID-19, except for murder.
A Toronto Police update on March 30 recorded that 16 people had been killed in the city in 2020, which is the same number of murders reported the year before.
