Two dead, one in­jured in Toronto birth­day party shoot­ing

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - CANADA -

TORONTO — Po­lice say wit­nesses are not co-op­er­at­ing with an in­ves­ti­ga­tion into a shoot­ing at a back­yard birth­day party that left two men dead and sent a woman to hos­pi­tal.

Det. Rob North says po­lice were called to the res­i­dence in Toronto’s east end at about 1 a.m. Sun­day, where many of the 200 peo­ple at­tend­ing the party were run­ning from the scene.

He says very few of the par­ty­go­ers have been co-op­er­a­tive with po­lice, and at this point, in­ves­ti­ga­tors don’t know any­thing about a po­ten­tial sus­pect or sus­pects. North says it’s still too early to know whether the shooter or shoot­ers were guests at the party, and it’s not yet clear who the in­tended tar­get was.

The two male vic­tims have been iden­ti­fied as Re­naldo Cole, 33, and Dwayne Camp­bell, 30.

North says both men and the fe­male vic­tim were known to po­lice.

Toronto po­lice are ask­ing peo­ple from the party to come for­ward, or to anony­mously sub­mit cell­phone video to CrimeStop­pers. North also asked any­one with back­yard sur­veil­lance video in the neigh­bour­hood to sub­mit it to po­lice.
