TORONTO -- A massive gunfight that left one man seriously injured in Etobicoke's New Toronto area on Tuesday morning involved at least 80 shots fired and occurred outside a new nearby booze can that was rented for a gender reveal party the previous night.

QuoteOn Wednesday, bullet holes could still be found in cars parked nearby.

Police told CP24 they found so many shell casings they ran out of plastic evidence markers to cover them with, and were forced to improvise.

Neighbours say the illegal booze can has been operating off an alleyway south and parallel to Lakeshore Boulevard for about a week.

I agree, but of course the bakers would have been in the store making the baked goods for sale that day.  However it appears that there are bakeries open to the public at that hour. 

Quote

Seven West. 24/7 Kitchen with full menu and a few cakes on display.
Chinatown (on Spadina) probably has a few places that are open to around 3 AM or later.
Falafel places (Falafel house near Yonge and Bloor) usually have baklava and other desserts.
Convenience stores have some Vachon cakes on for sale.
24 hour grocery stores with bakery departments.

On Oct. 17, the party ended with a whimper for a Toronto man allegedly playing the illegal gun game.

According to cops, around 10:34 a.m. on Route 37 in tiny Oswegatchie (population 4,424) in St. Lawrence County, NY State Police and the Border Patrol pulled over Ayub Y. Guled.

The 19-year-old was a mere nine minutes from Ogdensburg sitting across the St. Lawrence River from Prescott, safety and boffo bucks.

Instead, Guled was arrested and charged with eight counts of criminal possession of a firearm, eight counts of criminal possession of a weapon, 10 counts of criminal possession of a weapon, one count of criminal possession of a weapon and criminal sale of a firearm.

He was also charged with criminal possession of stolen property and criminal impersonation — both misdemeanors — for allegedly providing false identifying information to police.

Probably the first hint something was up, was that he was trying to cross at Ogensburg/Johnstown...if he was headed to Toronto, he should have been crossing at the Thousand Islands bridge from I 81.

And what was his excuse for being in the States in the first place?? Unless he was driving truck.

Texas boy, 3, dies after accidentally shooting himself in the chest at birthday party

A Texas child is dead after accidentally shooting himself in the chest during his birthday party, according to the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office.
%7B©Deputies were dispatched to a home in Porter, Texas — about 25 miles north of Houston — on Saturday for a wellness check, according to a press release.

When the officers arrived, they were told the child, 3, who has not been identified, had been shot in the chest. Family and friends had gathered at the home for the birthday party.

While playing cards they heard the gunshot go off.

The child found the gun, a pistol, after it fell out of a family member's pocket, according to the press release.

I’m sure the families of the deceased are just ecstatic that the shooter Is achieving such great potential just 8 years later:

Quote

One of the triggermen who turned a summer barbecue on Danzig Ave. into a wild shootout has had his day parole extended, the Toronto Sun has learned.

Nahom Tsegazab — who is serving an 11-year, five-month sentence for manslaughter and aggravated assault – is a first-time federal offender.

The board noted that he is in a category where four out of five similar offenders will not commit an indictable offence within three years of release.

It described Tsegazab as having “have high levels of motivation, accountability and reintegration potential.”

He was first granted day parole last March and was released to reside at a halfway house in April.

Walmart removes firearms, ammunition from store floors in U.S., citing 'isolated civil unrest'
Move designed to protect customers, employees as tensions rise, retail chain says

Walmart Inc. removed firearms and ammunition from store floors in the United States this week to protect customers and employees as tensions across the country rise, the Wall Street Journal reported on Thursday.

"We have seen some isolated civil unrest and as we have done on several occasions over the last few years," a Walmart spokesperson told the newspaper. "We have moved our firearms and ammunition off the sales floor as a precaution for the safety of our associates and customers."

The Bentonville, Ark.-based retailer, the largest in the world, will still sell guns upon request.

The move comes after several days of protests, widespread vandalism and an overnight curfew in Philadelphia after police fatally shot a Black man who had a history of mental health problems.

In June, Walmart pulled firearms and ammunition from some U.S. stores amid nationwide protests over the death of an unarmed Black man, George Floyd, at the hands of Minnesota police in late May.

Last year, Walmart stopped selling handgun and short-barrel rifle ammunition while requesting that customers not openly carry firearms in its stores, even where state laws allow it.

The company also ended the sale of handguns in Alaska, the last state where stores still carried them.
