As the speeches went on at today's massive NBA Championship parade in Toronto, at least 4 shots reportedly rang out and there's now reportedly at least 2 victims. Details and video inside.

Today went from an extremely happy and celebratory occasion for a historic win, to shots fired with multiple victim.

As the Toronto Raptors took over the 6 today during their NBA Championship parade, everything was all good until moments ago when a shooting, possibly two shootings, occurred.  It sent the overly massive crowd into chaos. At least two victims have reportedly suffered "serious" but not life-threatening injuries, according to Toronto police.

Toronto Star sports columnist, Bruce Arthur, was on the scene and described how the crowd dispersed after gunshots rang out at Nathan Phillips Square where the team is giving their speeches post-parade:

The chaos was caught on video leaving people wondering what exactly was happening:

Some thought it could possibly be fireworks.  Police confirmed it was, in fact, a shooting. And there is at least 1 victim:

This may not be the only shooting today either. City Hall reporter for the Toronto Star, Jennifer Pagliaro, says there's reports of another shooting near the Eaton Centre mall. She witnessed a victim being loaded into an ambulance:


Very scary. Fortunately, it seems the second particular situation is now under control thanks to police. 


The crowd was huge today, and likely not easy to prevent from a stampede caused by a shooting.


It's unfortunate, because the celebrations looked litty all afternoon with the whole team, including Ambassador Drake, going HAM:

Stay safe, Toronto!
