York Regional Police have recovered a dark-coloured Jeep Grand Cherokee they believe fled the scene after a double shooting that claimed the life of a Vaughan, Ont., woman.

Police say the vehicle was discovered by a passerby on Garyray Drive and Barmac Drive near Steeles and Weston in North York.

The vehicle was featured in a press release which showed security cam footage of a Jeep approaching off of Caster Avenue in Vaughan where the shooting took place.

According to York Regional Police, 28-year-old Mila Barberi was found unresponsive Tuesday afternoon outside an electrical supply store on Caster Avenue, near Weston Road and Highway 7. She was pronounced dead in hospital.

An unidentified 40-year-old man, who police believe was known to the victim, suffered minor injuries and was transported to hospital.

Police said Wednesday that it was too early to determine whether it was a targeted attack.
