Toronto Police say there is still a suspect and a gun outstanding in the shooting that marred the Toronto Raptors NBA championship celebrations on Monday.
Four people were injured, three were arrested and two guns were recovered next to Nathan Phillips Square at about 3:45 p.m. just as the team was being introduced to a massive crowd.
Chief Mark Sunders said Tuesday that police are looking for a fourth suspect and a gun that matches shell cases found at the scene.
“There is a potential firearm out there that hasn’t been seized,” Saunders said. “We have three people charged and we are looking for more.”
He said that at the moment, those in custody are facing firearm charges.
“It’s our hope to lay more charges and bring people before the judicial system,” the chief added.
Police are looking for witnesses or anyone who may have captured video of the incident.
“You can’t have people in a small space (like where the shooting occurred) and say I didn’t see anything,” he said.
The four people injured suffered non-life-threatening injuries.
“It doesn’t diminish the fact when there is gunplay there is a lot of fear in that situation,” Saunders said.
The suspect wanted is described as a man about 5-foot-9 with a heavy build and short brown hair, who was wearing a white shirt.
