Durham police said two victims were rushed to Sunnybrook hospital while the third victim managed to get to a local hospital with the aid of a friend. One person is in custody.
Three people have been taken to hospital in serious condition after a shooting in Oshawa Saturday evening.
Durham Police Insp. Melanie Anderson told reporters on scene that they rushed to an apartment building on Elgin Crt., near Adelaide Ave. W. and Gibbons St. around 9 p.m. for reports of gunshots.
“It was a fairly chaotic scene,” Anderson said. Numerous residents had reported hearing gunshots coming from the area of one complex, and several men were seen fleeing the scene in different directions. When police arrived, the first victim was located in front of the building with gunshot wounds. Another victim was found in the rear of an apartment, also suffering from gunshot wounds.
Police say the shooting was the result of a disturbance involving several people inside that apartment. The two victims located on scene — a 54-year-old woman and a 23-year-old man — were rushed to Sunnybrook hospital. A 22-year-old man who was also a victim of the shooting was taken to a local hospital by a friend.
Although two of the victims were initially described as being in serious condition, it’s now known that all injuries were non-life-threatening.
There were multiple shots fired, but police do not yet know how many guns were involved.
Durham police arrested one man on Gladstone St. half an hour after the shooting, but are still seeking other male suspects. They are canvassing the neighbourhood for more information.
