Man shot

A man was shot twice on Saturday, March 12, outside 1775 Weston Road, according to CP24.

The police said that “this was a targeted event”, and that the victim “had some kind of interaction with the occupants of a dark-coloured sedan.”. They are asking for anyone who might have dashcam footage to come forward.

The victim was shot in the abdomen and first aid was given by a bystander. He was rushed to the hospital in critical condition.

Man falls from Weston apartment after being Tasered

A man fell from a third-floor apartment after being Tasered by police, according to CTV News. The man, who was wanted for a domestic assault, had climbed down from the 10th floor. He then negotiated with police for several hours before they Tasered him.

The man was in the troubled apartment building at 1765 Weston Rd—the same apartment two men died outside after a shooting in 2010 and in which a police officer was shot in 2001. Another man, Jahmelle Grant, was murdered nearby in 2009.

The building may be expanded as part of Toronto’s “Tower Renewal” project.  The landlord of  1765 and 1775  Weston Road was named one of Toronto’s worst landlords by NOW Magazine.
