Scarborough shooting - here we go again

I've got to stop checking Twitter late at night, as it only brings bad news. This one's especially hard to swallow: a 12-year-old girl is among the victims after gunfire rang out at a house party in Scarborough earlier this evening. (CTV Toronto story here.)

Police now confirm at least one dead among the multiple shooting victims. Numbers are't confirmed, but some reports say there are 10 shooting victims. Twitter's lighting up with reports of a second death. We'll see how this plays out. Update: 2 dead - including a teenaged girl and a man in his 20s - and 19 injured. A toddler is among the injured. Police confirm a person of interest is in custody. Please see below for latest links.

Either way, unreal.

(Feel free to post updated info in the Comments section. I'll do the same here.)

Just crazy, and I agree with you. I have to stop watching the news late at night.

No argument is worth bringing a gun out.

Pain needs to be handled differently.

Inflicting our pain onto others is not civilised behaviour.
