2 men arrested after shooting follows ‘heated argument’ in north Toronto

TORONTO — Police in Toronto have made two arrests in a firearms investigation that followed what they call a “heated argument” outside a bar.

It started early Saturday, when police say there was an “altercation” outside a “licensed establishment” on the city’s northwest side (near Finch Avenue West and Hwy. 27).

In a statement Saturday evening, police say the two suspects were “found to be in joint possession of a firearm and discharged two rounds into a group of people.”
