BT Toronto | posted Wednesday, Sep 2nd, 2020

Six people are in hospital after a shooting overnight at a bakery on Eglinton Avenue West.

Emergency crews were called to the scene at Eglinton and Oakwood avenues, west of Allen Road, around 2 a.m. on Wednesday.

Police said the bakery was open and filled with customers when a black SUV pulled up outside and someone began shooting into the store front.

“This is a very brazen shooting at this hour of night, no regard what so ever for any kind of safety, they just shot randomly into a group of people inside the bakery,” Insp. Tim Crone explained.

“At the time of the shooting it during a heavy (rain) downpour so a lot of people actually were inside.”

All six victims suffered serious but not life-threatening injuries.

“Very fortunately none of them are life threatening at this time. All six were transported to various hospitals and trauma units throughout the city. At last check they were in serious but stable conditions,” Crone said.

There has been no word on a possible motive for the shooting.

Police say several other businesses in the area were open at the time of the shooting and officers will be canvassing the area looking for witnesses and security video.

Eglinton has been closed from Oakwood to Marlee avenues while police continue to investigate.
