Police are searching for suspects following a brazen daylight shooting in Ajax on Wednesday.
Durham police say they were called to the area of Harwood Avenue and Kingston Road just before 4:30 p.m. following reports of shots being fired.
When they arrived, they discovered a 26-year-old man and a 24-year-old woman in a while Hyundai Elantra suffering from gunshot wounds. They were taken to a trauma centre in Toronto in life-threatening condition.
Police say the intersection was riddled with more than 40 shots fired between at least two vehicles. Investigators believe an altercation between two groups sparked the shooting, which they say was not a random act.
Police say the suspect vehicle fled the scene. It has been described as a black, four-door sedan but no other details were provided.
