Neighbourhood traumatised as two girls, aged five and nine, shot in Scarborough playground
(The Star Fashion & Style)

A Scarborough neighbourhood is in shock after two sisters, ages 5 and 9, were shot at a playground Thursday afternoon.The two girls were taken by ambulance to Sick Kids Hospital.Paramedics confirmed that the younger child was shot in the abdomen and the older girl was shot in the ankle. Both underwent surgery and their conditions have been upgraded to non-life-threatening.“Obviously, these two young girls are not the intended target. Some cowards came into this neighbourhood and opened fire into a playground,” Toronto police Chief Mark Saunders told reporters at the scene. “ This act is despicable, and rest assured that we’ll put adequate resources to resolve this one.” Toronto paramedics received a call about 5 p.m. regarding a shooting at Alton Towers Circle, in the area of McCowan Rd. and McNicoll Ave. Seven shots were fired.There were about a dozen children in the park at the time and one man who may have been the target, police said. He has been identified as a person of interest in the investigation.By 8 p.m., Alton Towers Circle was crowded with police cars and blocked off by incident tape. Residents in the neighbourhood of townhouses stood on their porches and in their driveways to watch the commotion.Imran Yasar, a father of three, who lives in the neighbourhood said he came home to a street filled with police cars. “I feel very sad,” said Yasar, who has lived in the area for eight years. “We’ve never had any incident like (this).”TOP STORIES.
