Traffic accident and a shooting on June 10-11

A traffic accident and a shooting in our community in the past couple of days leave us wishing there were better news to report.
Here's the first one, as reported by Metro on June 12:
A man is in critical condition after a shooting in a Downsview parking lot overnight. According to police, the 35-year-old victim drove himself to Humber River Hospital after he was shot multiple times at a plaza near Jane and Wilson at about 3 a.m. Friday. He has since been transferred to Sunnybrook Hospital with injuries that are potentially life-threatening. 
The second is equally unfortunate, published June 11:
A man is dead and a woman is in custody after a North York hit-and-run shortly after midnight.
According to police, a male cyclist, 44, was struck by a westbound BMW on Finch Ave. near Sentinel Rd. shortly after midnight.
The driver fled the scene, but the vehicle was found by police near Portage Pkwy. and Jane St. shortly after.
A 23-year-old woman was taken into custody. Police say she does not have a licence.
The driver faces nine charges, including criminal negligence causing death and failure to stop after accident causing death.
Finch is closed from Topcliff Ave. to Sentinel Rd. while police investigate.
Let us hope for a problem-free week-end!
