TORONTO (AP) Police are looking for a fourth person and haven't recovered the gun involved in a shooting at a rally for the NBA champion Raptors that wounded four people and sent thousands fleeing, authorities said Tuesday.

Warriors rally, force Game 6 in NBA Finals

Warriors rally, force Game 6 in NBA Finals Kyle Lowry's 3-pointer at the buzzer was well off, and the Golden State Warriors rallied from a six-point deficit in the final three minutes to beat the Toronto Raptors 106-105 in Game 5 of the NBA Finals on Monday night. BOX SCORE: WARRIORS 106, RAPTORS 105 The Raptors still lead the series 3-2. Game 6 is Thursday at Oracle Arena. Kevin Durant left the game injured and Kevon Looney did the same, but the Warriors still found a way. Stephen Curry scored 31 points and Klay Thompson had 26 for the Warriors. Kawhi Leonard had 26 for the Raptors. Lowry finished with 18.

Toronto Police Chief Marc Saunders said they are looking for a male who was wearing a white button down T-shirt at Monday's shooting at city hall square, less than a block from where the players and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau sat on stage.

Police arrested three people who are now facing firearm charges, but the shell casings at the scene didn't match two guns seized.

Droves of Raptors fans stampeded from the site. Those wounded by the gunshots didn't suffer life-threatening injuries.

Investigators did not discuss a possible motive.

Hordes of fans jammed downtown Toronto for Monday's parade, raising concerns about safety, lack of proper barriers and overcrowding as the city celebrated its first major sports title in more than a quarter-century. The parade ran three hours behind schedule as the team's double-decker buses had trouble getting through the throngs.

Raptors miss opportunity in Game 5 of NBA Finals

Raptors miss opportunity in Game 5 of NBA Finals They were up by six, in the city that Torontonians call The Six, with less than three minutes left.The NBA championship was there for the taking. And the Toronto Raptors couldn't finish it off. The Raptors still lead the NBA Finals 3-2, even after losing at home to the Golden State Warriors 106-105 on Monday night. But they'll be heading back to California on Tuesday, and allowed the Warriors — the wounded two-time defending NBA champions — to have renewed life in their quest for a third straight ring. BOX SCORE: WARRIORS 106, RAPTORS 105 Kawhi Leonard's jumper with 3:28 left put the Raptors up 103-97.

Mayor John Tory said the team owner and the city only had ''three days'' to prepare for the parade. Tory said the city's manager will work with police and the city's sports teams to review the parade to see how they can improve on it.
