Three wounded, including one who died, in shooting at large street party in Toronto

A shooting Sunday night in downtown Toronto left three people wounded in a shooting at a large street party, Ontario Provincial Police said. A suspect was later arrested.

Mark Pugash, a spokesman for the Ontario Provincial Police, said the incident occurred at 8:30 p.m. on Queen Street West near Yonge Street. He said the suspect, a white male in his 20s, drove off in a 2013 red Ford Mustang from the scene.

According to residents, two of the injured people were transported to a nearby hospital with serious injuries, and a third person was transported to an area hospital and is in stable condition. One woman who was at the scene said she helped place a tourniquet on one of the victims after he lost a lot of blood. Another witness said that one of the people injured later died at the hospital.

The Globe and Mail reported that the victim who died had been in cardiac arrest and was not rushed to the hospital in an ambulance. It quoted witnesses saying that the party featured live music and was “heavily populated.”

Police said they were trying to determine why someone at the party shot at someone else. “We have not established a motive,” said Parm Dixit, a police spokesperson. The incident was “very, very isolated,” he said.
