Five men were injured in a shooting targeted a mosque in Scarborough, Toronto on Saturday, Canadian authorities announced.
Police highlighted that the ages of the wounded people ranged between 28 and 35 years old, adding that the shooting took place at 1 a.m.
Acting Staff Superintendent David Rydzik revealed that a group of people were “randomly attacked” in a drive-by shooting incident, describing: “While they were here and just getting ready to leave, shots rang out.”
He added: “Unfortunately, five individuals were struck by those bullets from what we believe came from perhaps a vehicle on Markham Road that was travelling by.”
Four of the five injured were found at the scene of the incident with serious, but non-life-threatening gun wounds, and they were transported to the hospital.
Regarding the fifth, he made his own way to the hospital as he suffered from non-life threatening injuries.
Rydzik concluded that three of the injured people were released from the hospital.
