"This is a very solvable case," Saunders said. "And I think if we can work collectively with the community, we have five people shot, very young people who are shot, there is no need for this to happen. If we can solve this one, it would be a good one for the city of Toronto."

Officers found more than 20 bullet casings from the scene but have not recovered any guns.

Saunders said the shooters are believed to have fled in the vehicle eastbound on Clearview Heights toward Tretheway Drive.

Saunders said businesses nearby have good quality video and police are asking for members of the public to come forward if they have any information.

The police chief noted there have 235 people shot in Toronto this year.

"I have not seen this number before. We are actively doing our part in making the apprehensions. We have seized numerous firearms off the streets right now across the city, made numerous arrests, laid numerous charges, but really if we are going to get this right, it's not a matter of apprehension. there are a lot of moving parts to this," he said.

"But when someone does pull a trigger, we actively and aggressively do what we can to arrest."

He said there is always the concern of retribution when people use guns and that is why police need help from the public to find the suspects.

The man shot and killed outside an upscale Etobicoke restaurant Monday was a veteran mobster and enforcer who provided security for some of Toronto’s powerful Mafia figures. Antonio Fiorda, 50, went by the simpler name Tony, but was known on the street by a more memorable nickname: “Scratch.” The targeted daylight attack on Fiorda in the parking lot of a busy strip mall — across the road from Sherway Gardens, a large shopping mall — further highlights the instability in Canada’s underworld, both in Ontario and Quebec.
