Man and woman dead after double shooting in Vaughan
Police said they responded to a call around 12:45 a.m. Friday in a residential neighbourhood on Castlepoint Drive near Martin Grove Road and Highway 27.
Authorities said officers arrived and found two victims with gunshot wounds. They were both pronounced dead at the scene.
Staff Sgt. Dave Mitchell said it’s not immediately known if the man and woman were inside a white SUV, which had damage to the driver’s side window.
“The vehicle is obviously in play. The windows are shot,” Mitchell said. “Where the position of the victims at the time it took place, I don’t know. Or where they have been moved from.”
Police have identified the victims as 33-year-old Cosimo Commisso of Vaughan and 26-year-old Chantelle Almeida of Toronto.
Mitchell said police will be conducting a canvass of the area on Friday to look for further evidence.
Police have not released any information about possible suspects.
Authorities are asking anyone with dashcam video or surveillance video from their homes to come forward.
People with information is asked to contact the Homicide Unit at 1-866-876-5423 ext. 7865 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
