Police are investigating after one person was fatally shot and another was sent to hospital in Markham Thursday night.
York Regional Police were called to a restaurant at 5460 Highway 7 East, in the area of McCowan Road and Highway 7 East, just after 11 p.m. and located two adults with gunshot wounds.
Police said one person was pronounced on scene and one was rushed to a trauma centre with serious injuries.
Duke Pyun, a man that has worked in the area for 12 years, said he has never seen anything like this.
“This area is very peaceful, very quiet,” said Pyun.
A car dealership beside the restaurant was also struck with a bullet.
There’s no word yet on the circumstances surrounding the shooting.
Police said witnesses reported seeing a motorcycle fleeing the scene at a high speed.
Police have not made any arrests at this time.
