Bullets and Bodies Fly

I started my night with a pedestrian struck at Bayview and Major Mackenzie. CPR was in progress as they rushed the female victim to hospital. She was struck by a minivan while crossing the street, after leaving a nearby restaurant.

Next it was off to the Danforth near Main St. after several shots were fired into Annie's Bar. Bullet holes could be seen in the front window and casings littered the street as officers from 54 Division tried to get to the bottom of the gun fire. Patrons took cover and some ran out the back door as the bullets flew. Luckily nobody was injured.

A man in his 80's was rushed to hospital after being struck by a car on Dundas at Burnamthorpe in Etobicoke. The windshield of the car showed how serious the impact was, as officers from Traffic Services reconstructed the accident.

Three Shootings Tonight

We were having a real dry spell for the past couple of weeks. Tonight was the exception. I started my shift and went straight to a double shooting in the Lawrence Heights housing project. One man was shot in the head. I was only on scene for a short time when another shooting happened in Etobicoke near Evans and Royal York. That victim was shot three times and transported to St. Mike's. He wasn't cooperating with police. That's the way this crazy business goes. You wait and you wait some more then everything happens at once.

Finished the night off at a 2 alarm fire on the Danforth near Dawes Rd.
