Two men, including one in a wheelchair, were shot and killed near Jane and Eglinton at about 1:30 in the morning last night. Another was critically injured.
Chief Saunders said the shooting was “absolutely” targeted at at least one of the three men socializing outside an apartment building on Emmett Avenue in Mount Dennis.
“The evidence indicates that the three people who were shot were in the front area, just socializing, and then out of nowhere, the suspect came out and opened fire,” Saunders said.
