Five people are reportedly wounded after gunfire broke out inside of a North York night club.
Toronto police are now asking for any eyewitnesses to come forward, as one male victim remains in life-threatening condition, while the four others are in non-life-threatening condition.
Officer Stacey Davis said multiple people started to call police after shots rang out at the back of the North York club, District 45.
“The club was completely full,” said Davis, adding later that it was “fortunate there’s five victims only.”
Two of those injured in the gunfire escorted themselves to the hospital before police arrived. Three others, including the victim found in life-threatening condition, were located at the scene.
Of the five people shot, three were men and two were women, according to CBC.
Officer Davis went on to say that suspects are believed to have fled before police arrive, and that they are asking any eyewitnesses to come forward.
“It’s very concerning,” she said of the shooting. “The club was packed with patrons.”
