Six people are dead, including a suspected gunman, and a seventh person suffered major injuries in what police are calling a “horrendous” condo shooting in Ontario on Sunday night.
About 7:20 p.m., police responded to a report of an active shooter who had shot several people at a building in Vaughan, a city just north of Toronto, according to a York Regional Police news release.
“When police arrived, an interaction occurred between the officers and a male subject and the subject was shot,” police wrote in the release.
The male, who police identified as the shooting suspect, was pronounced dead at the scene, according to police.
At the scene, officers found a “horrendous scene where numerous victims were deceased,” police Chief Jim MacSween said.
Authorities have not released more information about the victims or the suspect’s motive.”We’re in the process right now of doing notifications to those families, so at this point I can’t share any information on the victims or the subject,” York Regional Police Chief Jim MacSween told reporters Sunday night, according to local media.
