Four people suffered “non-life threatening” injuries during a shooting Monday during the Toronto Raptors’ NBA Championship parade, Toronto Police Chief Mark Saunders said.
Three people were arrested in separate incidents related to the shooting.
The Toronto Raptors were celebrating with large crowd in attendance for their victory over the defending champions, the Golden State Warriors.
The shooting brought negativity to a city that just captured its first NBA Finals win in its history.
Prime minister Justin Trudeau, Toronto’s mayor and the Raptors players remained on stage while the ceremony was briefly interrupted.
The celebration was briefly put on pause, but resumed after the crowd was informed of the emergency.
During the parade, Tory presented the team with the key to the city.
