Toronto police are asking the public for assistance in their ongoing investigation into a shooting incident that occurred last month in downtown Toronto. The incident, which took place near The Esplanade and Princess Street on August 12, resulted in injuries to a young child and two adults.
Authorities have released photographs of a grey 2019 Honda Civic, which they believe was the vehicle used by the suspects in the shooting. The car had been reported stolen in Brampton on July 11 and was later recovered two days after the incident. Police noted that the car’s spoiler had been removed, making the mounting bolts visible.
During the shooting, the suspects pulled into an underground parking garage and fired multiple shots at another car. The two men in the targeted vehicle, aged 80 and 50, sustained serious but non-life-threatening injuries. The child, who is under the age of five, suffered superficial wounds.
