Police blocked off the busy intersection to investigate early Wednesday and found multiple shell casings, as well as bullet holes in nearby buildings.
A portion of Queen Street that had been closed for the investigation reopened ahead of the morning rush hour, though some pedestrian areas remain roped off by police tape.
