5 Shootings in the GTA Last Night, 1 Fatal

The two shootings last night have now turned into 5. One man has died making it the 34th homicide for 2009.

I reported earlier how two teenagers around 6:45pm were shot in the Teesdale area (picture) located in the East York region. A shootout between two groups of teens occurred causing a 17 year to be shot in the face and a 16 year old shot twice in his stomach.
About two hours earlier before that, a teenage girl was shot in the leg on Trethewey Dr.
Around 9pm, a 26 year old man took a shot to the face around Kipling and Finch. He is expected to be okay as when paramedics arrived he was conscious and breathing.

Last night around 10:30 police responded to a man suffering from gunshot wounds. Police are now saying it looks like playing with a firearm caused this man's death. A gun may have accidentally discharged, hitting him in the chest. The suspect and the victims girlfriend drove him to the hospital. Clearly a stupid act is what caused this man to lose his life.
