Bullet holes found in Toronto Eaton Centre after shooting at Yonge and Dundas
One man is dead and a teenager is in hospital this morning with serious injuries after three separate overnight shootings within the City of Toronto.
Police were called to a parking lot near Middlefield Road and McNicoll Avenue in Scarborough shortly before 10 p.m. on Thursday night, where a party was thought to have been taking place. A male victim was found suffering from gunshot wounds and, despite the best efforts of paramedics, died at the scene.
