Homicide #5 and #6-Double Shooting in Scarborough Highrise

Yesterday at 1360 Danforth Rd. a shooting took place that left 2 men dead and one wounded. Residents on two floors were locked out of their residence as forensics tried to gather clues in regards to the double shooting.

One man was found inside the building with gunshot wounds and taken to Sunnybrook hospital in critical condition. A second man was pronounced dead at the scene. And a third was found dead in an apartment on the 14th floor, police said. Supposedly one of the dead victims may have been the suspect in the shooting.

All three victims were in their late teens or early twenties, police said. The police are also looking for an individual seen limping from the scene as a person of interest. There were supposedly five men in the house when the shooting took place.

Clearly someone went to rob someone and it turned into a robbery gone bad. This is a very sad case because lives are lost but what's even sadder is this sounds like a sad case of stupidy and greed for either money, drugs or guns. When will the youth learn it ain't worth it.

The names of the victims have not yet been released.
