Police: Shooting at Yorkdale Mall

Toronto police say they are responding to Yorkdale Shopping Centre after shots were fired in the area.

“What we have is reports of shots being fired. I can’t give you any other information at this time,” Sgt. Frank Partridge told CP24.

Police say the mall is being evacuated.

A number of people inside the mall posted messages saying they had taken shelter in stores after shots were fired.

No injuries have been reported so far.


“I’m in Yorkdale shots were fired ? Locked in the Rolex store for safety,” Twitter user Kelly Freeman tweeted.

“Was eating at The Cheesecake Factory when alarms started going and people started running. Stuck in the parking lot,” wrote Travis Paul, another Twitter user who was at the mall.

A short time later, police tweeted that there was confirmed discharge of a weapon in the area and said the mall was being evacuated.

In a tweet, police said they are looking for multiple suspects. They described one suspect as a male in his 20s who was wearing a black jacket with a hoodie and blue jeans. A second suspect was described as a skinny male in his 20s, standing around five-foot-nine and carrying a black handgun.

No injuries have been reported so far.

Subway trains are also bypassing Yorkdale Station as police investigate.

Aerial images showed hundreds of people standing in crowds outside the mall following the evacuation.

Police are advising people to avoid the area for the time being.
