It happened around 9 p.m. Sunday on Danforth Avenue just east of Coxwell.

Police say both victims were dropped off at separate hospitals.

“There is a male in hospital currently suffering from a single gunshot wound,” Det. Chris Burke told CityNews. “We have a second victim in another hospital suffering from some sort of injury that we believe was received in this altercation.”

One of the victims suffered serious but not life-threatening injuries.
