Mayor Miller's office strangely silent...

...on which city of Toronto shooting range is responsible...

A man was shot to death and two others injured in a shooting at a church in the northwest end of the city early this morning.

Police said roughly 500 people were in attendance at the late-night bash at a hall owned by the Disciples Revival Church on Gordon MacKay Rd. in the Jane St. and Hwy. 401 area when gunfire erupted.

UPDATE: Latest shooting vic id'd
Devon Wynter, 40, was rushed to Sunnybrook hospital where he was pronounced dead. Wynter lived in Toronto and also went by the names of Yuggi and Yogi.

Grinton said a second 35-year-old man, who had "just arrived" at the dance, was across the room when he was struck by a stray bullet.

UPDATE2: Of course... we're not done yet
Sunday morning got off to a bloody start just before midnight, when a terrible attack left a man fighting for his life.

The victim, believed to be in his 30s, was shot in the face on Eglinton near Black Creek Drive. Miraculously, he was conscious and breathing when emergency crews arrived on scene.

Not far from that assault, just two kilometres away and about an hour later, another man took several bullets to his leg.

Why is Sunnybrook the centre for the Toronto Trauma unit? Shouldn't the hospitals closest to the Entertainment District and the Jane/Finch area be equipped with this service instead of Sunnybrook which is found in an upper class neighbourhood that doesn't see a lot of shootings? Might save a few more lives if they could get the needed attention faster.

Boy, the church picnic should be a hootenanny.
