2 dead, 19 injured in Toronto shooting


A gunfight in Toronto has killed 2 people and injured 19 more, including two pregnant women and a three-year-old. Police suspect at least two shooters. The incident occurred on Monday night in Scarborough where around 200 people had gathered for a block party. More people were injured in trampling.

Toronto’s police chief said “I’ve been a cop for 35 years and this is the worst incident of gun violence in my memory anywhere in North America,” the Globe and Mail reports. “I think every citizen in Toronto will be shaken up by what has transpired here in Toronto tonight.”

A female teenager and man in his early 20s died in the shooting. It is not clear why so many bullets were fired into the crowd. The neighbourhood party had only begun shortly before the shooting.

This is the 6th shooting of the year in the 43rd Division in Toronto. These were the 27th and 28th homicides.

  1. Remember, this is the fault pro-immigration politicians,
    past and present. They assured us this
    would not happen, they assured us that
    there was only an upside to immigration.
    How is this gang violence improving our economy? Who’s going to want to invest in a war
    zone? The pro-immigration crowd was dead
    wrong. Why should be believe them now
    when they say we need even more immigration?
    The only way we can protect our country is to have an immediate
    moratorium on all new immigration so that at least, things don’t get
    worse. Deporting foreign-born gangsters
    is also a good idea. You’re at your
    computer anyway—e-mail your MP before it’s too late.
