Must've been one of those...

...high capacity AR-15 crossbows...

Three people are dead and one person has been injured after someone discharged a crossbow in the Scarborough Village area.

Const. David Hopkinson said it is too early to say whether the shooting was intentional or accidental.
So, Constable Clouseau, what's your theory... an accidental discharge, followed by two identical mishaps? Or, maybe he loaded three arrow-thingies by mistake.

And, no... that's not my "minkie."

UPDATE: Let the Media Frightening begin...

Although you stand a better chance of falling in the shower and breaking your neck, we, the "professional" journalists of Toronto, will do our best to convince you this is a "clear and present danger"...
The deadly weapons, though uncommon in homicide investigations, are surprisingly easy to get your hands on. A licence isn’t required to buy or own a crossbow and the hunting weapons are not regulated. Anyone over the age of 18 can walk into a sporting goods store and walk out with a weapon capable of firing a small arrow or ‘bolt’ up to 500 feet per second.
Or, if you're in a real hurry, you can go into your kitchen and grab a knife from the cutlery drawer.

We gotta figure a way so they all start shooting each other, like in LA.

no figuring required... shootings in the gta, as in basically every other large city in north america is young black males shooting other young black males.

Except, Neo, when females get in the way of the line of fire. As is the case here.

"Anyone over the age of 18 can walk into a sporting goods store and walk out with a weapon"

Anyone under the age of 18 can walk out of a hardware store with a weapon capable of inflicting mass casualties - don't even get me started on the utility of common flammables as weapons.

!9th century fear mongering, hysteria peddling and if-it-bleeds-it-leads mentality still permeate dino media spew - so glad it won't survive the comet.

I'm still trying to figure out how the perps got 3 kill shots off with a cross bow - unless the targets were sleeping and didn't move while he reloaded or there were 3 loaded crossbows.

The name of the perp tells me all I need to know about the motives but how a thug with the IQ of a radish can pull of 3 fast kill shots with a 150-200lb. pull hunting crossbow is an enigma

"bill e says... how the perps got 3 kill shots off with a cross bow"

there is now media speculation that he used a crossbow bolt like a knife.

ps... the talha mentioned in the post was a separate incident.
