A 35-year-old man has been taken into custody.
Three people have been killed on a Toronto street and police are investigating whether a crossbow was used.
Police responding to a call about a stabbing found three people who appeared to have been injured by a crossbow bolt, said spokesman David Hopkinson. Stab wounds. Crossbow found on scene.
Officials could not confirm whether the injuries were caused by the crossbow.
A police source told CTV News that two bodies were discovered in the garage at the Scarborough home and the third was found in a driveway.
No further information has been released on the identities of the man in custody or the deceased.
"Now that they have been pronounced, we will block off the scene and investigate".
Sadiya Haque, who lives around the corner from the house where the incident occurred, says the incident scared her.
"Generally it is a very quiet neighbourhood, we are very happy to live here", he said.
Dale Lounsbury, who sells crossbows at a sporting goods store in Waterloo, Ont., and owns one himself, said they can be risky due to their power and accuracy.
"Crossbows are not a rapid-fire instrument at all", Lounsbury said.
Unlike guns, buying a crossbow does not require a license in Canada. In that case, Zhou Fang then crushed his 52-year-old father's skull with a hammer.
