One man is dead and another seriously injured after a double shooting at a cafe in Vaughan on Friday, York police confirm.

It happened on Woodstream Boulevard, in the Highway 7 and Martin Grove Road area, just before 7 p.m.

No suspect information is available, although police say there were likely numerous witnesses to the violence.

“Just look around you and you’ll see the vast number of people that are here, even right now,” said Sgt. Clint Whitney. “This is a busy area. This is a place where people come to conduct business, to have social meetings. There were definitely people in this area when it took place.”

The deceased man died at the scene, police said. His identity has not been released.

Police are asking witnesses to come forward.
