York regional police are searching for a masked suspect after two people were shot outside Promenade Mall in Thornhill Sunday night.

Emergency crews were called to scene, in the area of Bathurst and Centre streets, just before 9 p.m.

Both victims were taken to a trauma centre with serious but non-life threatening injuries.

The mall was closed at the time of the shooting.

Police say the suspect is described as a male wearing a mask and armed with a weapon that was last seen leaving the area on foot.

“There was one suspect armed with a handgun and multiple rounds were fired,” Sgt. Mark Hilliker explained.

“An extensive search was conducted to locate this male. The male was wearing a black mask.”

Anyone with information is or dashcam footage is asked to come forward and contact investigators.

The TTC says the 160 Bathurst North bus route is diverting around the area while police continue to investgate.
