Upon arriving at the scene, the police noticed that five people had been hit by bullets.

A man and a woman were pronounced dead at the scene.

Police officers also discovered two men and a woman who were injured and transported them to hospital.

The other two victims, a man and a woman, remain in critical condition in hospital.

There has a vibe here. I don't know how you would describe it. It's not for people who are the most timid, he says.

He said the neighborhood has a diverse mix of low-income people. He said his own house had been broken into once since he lived in the neighborhood, but he admitted he left his door unlocked.

He was never physically threatened, he specifies.

This can be very, very important for our investigation, so we would really like to be contacted, notes Officer Michalyshen. more information.
