No injuries after 2 tow trucks shot at near Hwy. 401 in North York Patricia D’Cunha

Toronto police are investigating after shots were fired at two tow trucks in two separate shootings near Highway 401 in North York overnight.

Police said the first drive-by shooting happened just before midnight Wednesday near the on-ramp to the westbound 401 at Avenue Road.

A tow truck was parked on the grass just off the on-ramp when a black-coloured car, possibly a Mercedes, drove past and fired dozens of shots at the tow truck.

Police said the second shooting happened a short time later at the Oriole GO Station near Leslie Street and the 401. Up to six shots fired at that location from a dark-coloured vehicle, possibly a Honda or a Mercedes, which then sped off.

No injuries were reported in either shooting.

So far police have not confirmed whether two shootings are linked.
