At least two people were killed near a rally celebrating the Toronto Raptors' NBA championship Monday, Toronto police confirmed at CBS News. Both victims sustained life-threatening injuries.
Two people were arrested in connection with the shooting and two guns were found, police spokesman David Hopkinson told CBS News.
The raptor celebration was briefly suspended in the tumult. Police were investigating the incident, which occurred around 3:45 pm as one of the owners of the Raptors was a speech.
Among the personalities present at the time were politicians such as Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Toronto Mayor John Tory, none of whom were wounded. About 1.5 million people attended the parade and ceremony.
The situation seems to be under control. According to the Toronto Police Service, crowds are dispersing throughout the area.
