Drive-by shooting leaves a woman hurt

Last Updated Sep 16, 2020 at 10:03 am EDT

A woman has suffered non-serious injuries after a drive-by shooting in North York on Tuesday evening.

Toronto Police say they received a call at 10:25 p.m. for multiple gunshots heard in the area of Jane Street and Wilson Avenue.

Deputy Inspector Mandeep Mann said the woman was driving southbound on Jane, and just before reaching the intersection, unknown suspects in a dark sedan opened fire and then drove away from the scene.

Upon arrival, police found a minivan with several bullet holes at Jane Street and Firgrove Cres/Yetreee Blvd.

Inside was a woman in her 50’s with a gunshot wound. Her son was in the vehicle as well, but was not injured.

Paramedics and police met with the victim after she drove home.

“I can only imagine that they were frightened and scared, and wanted to get away from anyone who was shooting at them, and they just kept driving,” Mann said.

There was a large police presence in the area. Southbound Jane Street had been closed at Finch Avenue.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police at 416-808-2222, Crime Stoppers anonymously at 416-222-TIPS (8477) or online at www.222tips.com,
