Toronto Police are still looking for the shooters in Wednesday afternoon’s drive-by shooting, according to Det. Quinn of 31 division.
Police are looking for a newer-model Toyota Camry, and they have a description of the car and its occupants. Police would not tell me what the shooters’ motive might have been, but they did tell Frances Nunziata’s office that they suspect it was gang-related.
According to Jennifer Maccarone-Cicchelli, Nunziata’s executive assistant, the police do not have any suspects, and do not know who the intended victim is. They also do not know if it was connected to the shooting on Humber Blvd the same night.
Nunziata released the following statement:
“It is extremely disturbing that this happened in this quiet, residential neighborhood, and in the daytime with children playing in the park nearby. This was a brazen act of violence by people who have no regard for public safety and are not welcome on our streets and in our neighborhoods. This shooting goes to show that more needs to be done to keep handguns off the streets and to get harsher sentencing for people who engage in this type of criminal activity.”
Police are asking anyone with information about the attack to call Detective Rebellato at (416) 808-3104.
