One man is dead and a woman is being treated in hospital after a late night shooting at a strip mall in Markham.
York Regional Police responded to reports of gun shots shortly after 11 p.m. near Hey Noodles restaurant, in the area of Highway 7 and McCowan Road.
The deceased victim was pronounced dead at the scene while the other was transported to hospital. She is listed in critical condition.
