Toronto Police have informed me that this afternoon, there was a shooting at a residence near Dundas Street East and Parliament Street that left two people dead and one with serious but non-life-threatening injuries. Two Toronto police officers were also injured following a foot pursuit related to the shooting. At this time, the motivation for the shooting is unknown, but police have made one arrest so far, and the investigation is ongoing. 

I extend my sincere condolences to the family, friends and community affected by this senseless act of violence and wish a swift recovery to the injured officers. 

As your neighbour and City Councillor, it is incredibly upsetting to hear of such acts of violence in our community. I remain steadfast in my commitment to addressing community safety as a top priority.

I understand that this is a challenging time for the community, and I want to extend my support to anyone affected by this event. Please do not hesitate to contact my office for assistance. We are here to support you in any way we can. Below I have also listed some resources you can access for support in Regent Park. 

My staff and I are currently on site with community members, Toronto Community Housing staff and Toronto Police. I will keep you updated as more information becomes available.

Sincerely,

Chris Moise

City Councillor

Ward 13 - Toronto Centre

Last month, I spent an afternoon in the Winchester Park neighborhood, a small area between Cabbagetown and St. James Town. This community, like its neighbours, is a mix of heritage homes, Toronto Community Housing units, and social service providers. My dedicated staff and two members of the Winchester Park Residents’ Association (WPRA) joined me.
