Two women in hospital with gunshot wounds after Vaughan shooting
Early morning shooting in Vaughan has left two women injured, one in a critical condition, the other in a stable condition.
Authorities were first dispatched to the area of Langstaff Road and Silmar Drive at about 3:40 a.m. on a shots fired report.
On arrival, they located a vehicle with bullet holes in its door, as well as several shell casings but no victim(s) was located.
Officers then located another related scene at a plaza about 800 meters down the road at Valeria Boulevard.
No victims were located there either but police subsequently found two women suffering from non-life threatening gunshot wounds at Cortellucci Vaughan Hospital.
On Monday afternoon at least five bullet holes could be seen in the plaza, including two that pierced a window belonging to a bubble tea shop.
The circumstances surrounding the shooting, however, remain unclear.
“Officers are appealing to any witnesses who may have been in the area at the time who have not yet spoken to police to please come forward. Investigators are also seeking any video surveillance from the area or anyone that may have captured dashcam video on the roadways,” York Regional Police said in a news release.
