At about 3:30 p.m., Toronto Police Services got a call about a shooting at the Sicilian Sidewalk Café on College Street in Little Italy. Details are still emerging but officials have confirmed that one person has been killed and another sent to hospital with injuries that are not believed to be life-threatening. Though it’s a Monday afternoon, the popular dessert spot was crowded—soccer fans were gathered both inside and on the cafe’s large patio to watch this afternoon’s Euro Cup match between Italy and Ireland. Two nearby schools, Montrose Junior Public School and Delta Alternative Senior School, are on lockdown while police continue investigating. Eastbound traffic lanes are closed, and 506 Carlton streetcars are diverting around the area in both directions.
