UPDATE: At a media conference today, York Regional Police Sgt. Clint Whitney said investigators have yet to establish any link between the gathering at a recording studio and the shooting that resulted in the death of a 39-year-old man and critically injured 27-year-old man early this morning.

"This gun violence is devastating," Whitney told reporters at the scene of the shooting in an industrial plaza on Creditstone Road.

"We are investigating the circumstances of what took place and the understanding is that the shooting occurred outside, so on the exterior part of the property," he said.

Investigators have yet to determine if the shooting was random or targeted, and Whitney could only say multiple shots were fired.

Police are appealing to anyone with information "about what transpired" or who were present at the gathering to contact police.

Investigators are interviewing witnesses and reviewing video in an attempt to identify any suspects, he said.


One man is dead and another in life-threatening condition after an early morning shooting at an industrial plaza in Vaughan early this morning.

Two men with gunshot wounds were discovered by officers who responded to a call for a shooting near a recording studio on Creditstone Road near Highway 7 West May 24 at 3:50 a.m., York Regional Police said.

One male victim was found without vital signs and has been pronounced deceased. The other male victim was transported to a trauma centre with life-threatening injuries.

The investigation is still in its early stages. At this time, there is no suspect information.

Police believe several people were in the area at the time of the shooting. Any witnesses who have not yet spoken to investigators are urged to come forward, along with anyone who has video footage or dashcam recordings from the area around the time of the incident.
