Staff Sgt. Al Asunmaa said there's no indication the shootings are gang related or connected with outlaw biker activity. He said police do believe the illegal drug trade is a factor in the shootings.
Investigators found that two different firearms used in the shootings, but have not determined if both weapons were the same calibre.
“We know there were at least two people in the vehicle,” Asunmaa said. “It was an independent witness who provided information about the suspect vehicle, and we know that it continued down Barrydowne Road and then west on the Kingsway.”
Investigators are now sifting through surveillance footage from area business on Barrydowne Road and Lasalle Boulevard. That footage, combined with tips being called into police, will hopefully lead to a quick arrest, Asunmaa said.
