Sources say SmokeDawg (friend of Drake) allegedly targeted in downtown Toronto shooting June 30, 2018
Three people have been rushed to hospital after gunfire rang out in the city’s Entertainment District Saturday evening.
Multiple shots were heard in the area of Queen Street West and Peter Street shortly before 8 p.m.
Toronto Paramedic Services said two males – one in his 20s and another of uncertain age – were taken to hospital with critical injuries, while a woman believed to be in her 30s was taken to hospital with serious, but non-life-threatening injuries.
Police said the suspects may have fled in a black SUV or a white car.
It’s not immediately clear whether the shooting happened on the street or inside a nearby nightclub.
The daylight shooting happened on the first day of the long weekend, as Queen Street West was jammed with pedestrians out enjoying the hot weather.
“It was terrifying. I was scared. I had two panic attacks. Even now I’m shaking,” said one woman who witnessed the shooting.
The woman said she saw a man in a white sweater get shot before a streetcar driver yelled at people to hit the ground.
She said some people hit the ground while others started fleeing.
“They (bystanders) were running because they didn’t really know where the shots were coming from,” another woman said.
She said she was crying and shaking in the aftermath of the violent incident.
“This is Canada Day weekend. Why are people doing this – I don‘t understand,” she said.
