Original story:

Nine people including a child have been rushed to a hospital following a mass shooting incident along Danforth Avenue in Toronto, Canada, Sunday night. Toronto police said the conditions of the victims are unknown and the shooter has been shot dead.

The shooting took place outside a bar near Christina’s Restaurant. Police reached the scene around 10 p.m. EDT and saw multiple people lying on the ground.

According to reports, a number of victims have sustained significant injuries and six victims were taken to trauma centers.

Two were sent to local hospitals while one was taken to a pediatric trauma center. An unconfirmed number of people were treated on the scene.

Witnesses heard up to 25 gunshots, local daily City News reported.

“There has been a mass shooting about 2-3 blocks along the Danforth in Toronto where I currently am located. We are safe. But the street has 2-3 dozen EMS, police, fire, etc., vehicles. 5-10 victims (there are unconfirmed death/s). More to come,” Nicholas Lemon, a resident tweeted.

“We heard the shots and live just north on Logan. Friends who live even closer say the shooting was at the Alexander the Great parkette. At 10pm on a summer night it is often filled with families and kids playing around the fountain,” a man named Jeremy Barker tweeted.

The Danforth’s website reads: “Toronto’s Greektown is the largest Greek neighborhood in North America and one of the most cosmopolitan areas of Toronto! Visit our part of town and experience a neighborhood alive with interesting restaurants, boutiques, shops, markets, cafes, and a host of wonderful experiences.”

This is a developing story.
