Man, woman seriously wounded in daylight shooting in Ajax

Last Updated Apr 29, 2021 at 11:35 am EDT

Police are searching for suspects following a brazen daylight shooting in Ajax on Wednesday.

Durham police say they were called to the area of Harwood Avenue and Kingston Road just before 4:30 p.m. following reports of shots being fired.

When they arrived, they discovered a 26-year-old male and 24-year-old female in a white Hyundai Elantra suffering from gunshot wounds. They were taken to a trauma centre in Toronto with serious but non-life threatening injuries.

Police say the intersection was riddled with more than 40 shots fired between at least two vehicles. Investigators believe an altercation between two groups sparked the shooting, which they say was not a random act.

Police say the suspect vehicle fled the scene. It has been described as a black, four-door sedan but no other details were provided.

Anyone with new information about this investigation is asked to contact Det. Hawkes of the West Division Criminal Investigations Bureau at 1-888-579-1520 ext. 2528.
