Double Murder on Weston Road

TPS secure the scene as EMS rush a victim to hospital
I had only just started my shift when the call came in for a double shooting on Weston Rd near Lawrence. I was on scene within minutes and rolled as both victims were rushed to hospital. Both men later died. This is Toronto's 43rd and 44th homicide of the year. Life in the big city.

Fatal Accident Closes Hwy 27 Near Rexdale Blvd.

A horrific crash closed Hwy 27 near Rexdale Blvd just as I began my shift. At least one person was killed and a second child just 8 years old is clinging to life. They were passengers in a Honda Civic which was struck by a Mercedes SUV.

The driver of the Mercedes is alleged to have tried to leave the scene, first by trying to blend in with the crowd of witnesses, then arrested while trying to hail a taxi to leave the scene.

PD confirmed to me that alcohol may have been a factor in the crash. The licence plates on the SUV were also expired. The 45 year old driver was taken to Traffic Services for further investigation. Two other occupants of the Honda were also treated by ambulance.

Gettin' it Done

I had a really busy night last night. I cranked out 5 items on the night shift including shots fired inside Fairview Mall and this fatal accident on Lakeshore Blvd West in Toronto. The night went by really fast. I enjoyed the Halo video game launch at Best Buy. They are using that on CBC Morning.

I am now safely back in the burbs. Stay Classy Toronto. Let's do it again tonight.
