Two men have been identified by police as having been killed during a shooting in Toronto, the city’s 42nd shooting of the year.
Anders Dale Dumais, 23, and Nayeem Hassan Dosanjh, 32, were killed by gunfire from an unoccupied car that crossed a sidewalk and into a bus stop on Sunday afternoon. Dosanjh was in the midst of signing a divorce papers, according to his brother, when the attack occurred.
Witness reports of the shootings claimed the home of a suspected drug dealer was the targeted location but Toronto police later said investigators were still evaluating a motive.
Several people were shot at the scene, including a man who was later found dead in hospital.
A second man taken to hospital later that evening was identified as 34-year-old Hanad Mohamed.
Witnesses reported seeing a silver sedan speeding away from the scene. Two hours later, a silver car later crashed into a fence, ending up on its roof, according to local media.
A funeral will be held for one of the victims on Wednesday.
On Wednesday, police added two additional homicides to the list, and a 23-year-old man died in hospital from injuries after he was injured in a hit-and-run on Monday night.
