Two men have been injured after a shooting on Queen Street East, just west of Woodbine Avenue, on Sunday, Jan. 6, afternoon.

There was a massive police response to the area at approximately 2:30 p.m. after the shooting which took place on the north side of Queen Street. A dark-coloured Audi in front of the Winerack on Queen Street had at least one bullet hole in the window.

At least one person was in custody in the back of a police car parked near the Audi.

A police officer was heard telling the man inside that he was being charged with attempted murder. Heavily-armed Emergency Task Force officers were surrounding the police car that had the man inside.

Early reports said police were looking for two men who fled on foot, and then police later updated that they had two men in custody.

Police closed a wide area around the shooting scene at Queen and Woodbine. Police also had a vehicle marked off with police tape in a gas station parking lot at Woodbine and Kingston Road.

According to reports, the two shooting victims suffered serious but not life-threatening injuries.

Police also said on Twitter that three firearms had been recovered in connection with the shooting.

It is not know for how much longer the intersection will be closed, but there is a heavy police presence in the area as of late Sunday afternoon.

Anyone with information on the incident can police at 416-808-5500 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 416-22-8477 or online at www.222tips.com
