Get out your decoder rings...

"Calgary police say the violence is generally localized to individuals of a group that is very disorganized and lacking in the structure of traditional gangs. Communities within central and northeast Calgary have the highest shooting occurrence rates and the shootings are most likely to happen during the night on weekends."
Meanwhile, back in Toronto's "gun free zone", or as I like to call it... the Home of the Whopper...light em up
Rinaldo Cole, 33, and Dwayne Campbell, 30, were both pronounced dead on scene after efforts to revive both men proved unsuccessful. The woman who was celebrating her birthday, meanwhile, was rushed to Sunnybrook Hospital.

Police have not released any information about potential suspects at this point, refusing to even speculate on how many people may have opened fire.

UPDATE: From better to diverse...
Despite there being “upwards of 200 people” at the party, Toronto Police Det. Rob North says police are struggling to find witnesses. “We’ve had very little co-operation from people,” North said.
How many of those 200 potential witnesses do you think will have been in the bathroom when the mayhem commenced?

It's the Danzig bloodbath all over again.

Also in Scarberia...
A shooting inside a Scarborough bar has sent five people to hospital.

Gunfire first erupted inside McGradies Tap & Grill on Victoria Park Avenue near Ellesmere Road at around 2:30 a.m.
Two men were shot in a suspected drive-by shooting in the neighbourhood of Eglinton East Saturday night, Toronto police say. As a result of the shots, two men later made their way to hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Police say it's not clear if the shooting was targeted.
You'll be happy to know Toronto cops aren't totally incompetent. They were able to offer up one suspect description from this weekend's mayhem...
"A gas bar attendant told Toronto police he saw two stabbing victims walking to his east-end gas station early Sunday morning. Police say the suspect is white, six feet tall and in his 20s and 30s."
Those damn violent honkies!


LAST WORD: The usual stereotypes, er... suspects
Police said he emerged from the car wielding a shotgun, much to the surprise of some passersby who came to his aid, thinking he might be injured. He then forced a woman out of her black Dodge Journey at gunpoint, and fled the scene in her car.

Quinnton Drake, 25, of Ajax, faces 21 charges including possession of property obtained by crime, six counts of pointing a firearm, robbery and dangerous operation of a motor vehicle.
If only there was a law...
