Investigators said the incident stemmed from an argument with an employee. According to police, damage was caused to the interior of the store, but no actual damage was caused to the outside and the windows were not broken.

Police said while the timing of the incident appeared to coincide with the crowd watching the Raptors game, they are currently not investigating the incident as related.
