Three dead in Scarborough crossbow incident; Case linked to suspicious package found downtown

The brutal killing of three people in Scarborough Village and the discovery of suspicious package at a downtown condo building are connected, Toronto Police confirmed.

Shortly before 1 p.m., police and paramedics were called to what was initially reported as a stabbing near Lawndale and Argo roads in Scarborough.

According to Det. Sgt. Mike Carbone, officers located the “lifeless bodies of three individuals” on scene and took one person into custody.

The victim, believed to be a male, is currently in hospital.

Meanwhile, a condo building near the city’s waterfront was evacuated sometime after 3 p.m. after a suspicious package was discovered.

The package was located at 218 Queen’s Quay, near Lower Simcoe Street, prompting an evacuation of the building.

At a brief news conference from the scene in Scarborough, Det. Sgt. Mike Carbone confirmed that the two incidents are linked.

“There is a link to that other crime scene at Queen’s Quay. My understanding to date is that it has been cleared at this point,” Carbone said Thursday afternoon. “We will follow up with the officers at 14 Division. If that information becomes relevant and there is a reason to release information to the media we will make it available at that time.”
