Three men and two women were killed, said York police in a news conference on Monday afternoon. A sixth victim, a 66 year old woman, was seriously injured and remains in hospital. York police say they are protecting her identity at this time

All victims live in the condo building, York police said, and confirm that three of the victims were members of the condo board.

Multiple search warrants will be executed, said police, but until that time investigators “can’t rule anything out.”

York Regional Police have been notified that the coroner’s office is working to identify the shooting victims and aren’t permitted to release their names at this time.
