According to police, there are a number of witnesses who are currently being interviewed at a nearby station. Police also plan to review surveillance camera in the area.

No information has been released about potential suspects at this point.

CP24 did speak to several witnesses at the scene who said they heard multiple gunshots at the time of the shooting.

We are sorry to hear about this and offer our condolences.
