However, Toronto Police Chief Mark Saunders said Tuesday that the two guns seized in the aftermath do not match bullet casings found at the scene — meaning at least one other person and firearm may have been involved.

The shootings happened around 3:45 p.m. ET, at Bay and Albert streets near city hall and Nathan Phillips Square as a rally capping off a victory parade was coming to a close. Four people were also injured in two separate stabbing incidents near the Eaton Centre Monday, about an hour before shots rang out in Nathan Phillips Square.

Of the three people taken into custody after shots rang out, Saunders said two were arrested in connection with one shooting incident, while a third arrest was made in connection with another.
