Livin' fast & furious...

Toronto police are seeking information about a weekend shooting in which shots were fired from one vehicle at another.

Police say they were called to the McCowan Road and Ellesmere Road area at 7:47 p.m. on Saturday, after reported gunshots. 174 shootings have occurred in Toronto since the start of the year, as of Monday morning.

That's an increase of about 10.8 per cent above the number of shootings at the same point in 2011.
I guess it's a Hogtown thing...
Toronto police say that a man got into a dispute over the weekend and allegedly pulled out a loaded handgun and pointed it at two other people.

Police say the incident happened Sunday in the Fountainhead Road and Sentinel Road area, near Keele Street and Finch Avenue West.

An 18-year-old Toronto man faces more than 10 criminal counts, including possession of a prohibited firearm with ammunition and two counts of pointing a firearm.
Yup... dispute resolution, TO style.
