It was the second consecutive rough night for Toronto police, are they were once again kept busy by two separate violent incidents in the city’s core. Fortunately, unlike the night before, there were no death reports to sign.
The first altercation took place at the “Turbo” nightclub on Adelaide Street in the wee hours of Friday morning. Two people were injured in a shooting, one of them seriously enough to be rushed to hospital. The man underwent surgery for abdominal wounds, and is in serious but stable condition.
Another man was hit in the leg by a stray bullet and suffered minor injuries. Police aren't sure what led to the shooting, and no gun was found on the scene. They're looking for suspects.
A short while later, two men apparently got into a fight at a bar near Spadina and Bloor. Officers say one of them pulled an unknown object from inside his jacket and struck the other around the head. The victim was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. Police expect to make an arrest in connection with the scrap.
