3 dead after crossbow attack

When crossbows are outlawed only outlaws will have crossbows

(CTV)  -  Three people have died after an attack involving a crossbow in Toronto’s east end.

The incident happened near Markham Road and Eglinton Avenue East in Scarborough Thursday afternoon.

Toronto paramedics said two males and one female, all of them adults, were pronounced dead at the scene. Another person was taken to hospital.
A police source told CTV News that at least two victims were hit by a crossbow bolt and that the incident happened in the rear garage of a house. The source said that two bodies were discovered in the garage and the third was found in a driveway.
A man has been taken into custody, police said, and it doesn’t appear that any suspects are outstanding.
Det. Sgt. Mike Carbone told reporters Thursday afternoon that the crime scene is linked to a separate report of a suspicious package in downtown Toronto.
Carbone said the downtown scene has been cleared, but would not elaborate on the connection.
He also said that police are still in the process of contacting the Scarborough victims’ next of kin.
Resident Jerome Cruz told CTV News Channel that he heard someone screaming for several minutes before everything went silent. He also heard acommotion and what sounded like “banging” in his neighbour’s backyard.
Cruz said the incident was “very shocking.”
“Generally it is a very quiet neighbourhood, we are very happy to live here,” he said.
Officers said they are investigating three different houses and are trying to determine exactly what happened.
