Fatal shooting in Toronto

CBC is reporting that "A man is dead, a teen boy and a woman who was an innocent bystander are seriously injured after a "targeted" shooting in downtown Toronto on Tuesday afternoon, police say. The man, 21, was pronounced dead in hospital, according to Const. Alex Li, spokesperson for the Toronto Police Service. His name has not been released. The boy, 15, and the woman, 27, are listed in serious condition and expected to recover."

"The shooting happened in the area of King Street West and Peter Street. Police were called to the area at about 4:10 p.m. Officers recovered a weapon at the scene, police say."

It was a throw away - a non registered firearm.

"Saunders said a blue vehicle waited at the scene for about 40 minutes for the occupants of another vehicle to arrive. When the other vehicle pulled up, the blue vehicle made a U-turn and people inside began shooting at people in the other vehicle."

The shooter got out on the passenger side of the blue vehicle, Saunders said. The victims ran southbound as they were being fired upon. The victim's vehicle was not left at the scene.
