Toronto - In the middle of the night, RCMP officers witnessed four shots coming from a black vehicle near the G20 summit security-zone. The car immediately sped away but officers were able to get partial license plate numbers.
On early Tuesday morning, shots were fired at the corner of King Street and John Street near the G20 summit security-zone, according to Bloomberg News. At least four shots were fired three blocks away from the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, the venue for the G20 summit.
Police are investigating the matter and stated that the shots were heard around 3:30 a.m. and officers were able to get partial license plate numbers, reports CP24. Police were able to recover shell casings in the street. No one was injured in the shooting.
Police are searching for a black BMW in connection with the shooting.
The Globe and Mail reports that the authorities do not believe the G20 and the shooting are linked.
“It’s not an uncommon occurrence in Toronto any more to get reports of shots fired on any given day or night,” said Sergeant Burrows. “We often respond into the entertainment district. … This is realistically no different. There’s nothing that indicates this is G20-related.”
Protests are expected to occur throughout the week, including Tuesday, when a Queer Liberation March happens in the late afternoon at the corner of Yonge Street and Queen Street.
