No threat to public safety from Whitby shooting

Durham Regional Police Service (DRPS) yesterday confirmed that the shooting incident on Underwood Drive in Whitby was an isolated incident and there is no threat to public safety.

Police are investigating the shooting in north Whitby that sent a male to a trauma centre with critical injuries, said a police statement.

On Friday, June 17 at about 3:50 am, members from Central West Division were dispatched to a residential home on Underwood Drive in Whitby for a shooting. Police located a 26-year-old male with critical injuries. The victim was transported to a Toronto-area trauma center where he remains in stable condition. Several suspects fled in a vehicle.

There are no suspect descriptions available; however, police are appealing for any witnesses to come forward or for anyone that may have dash-cam video or surveillance video in the area to contact investigators. It appears to be an isolated incident at this time and there is no threat to public safety.

Police in West Division responded to a local hospital after a second male walked in with a gunshot wound. This male was transported to a Toronto-area trauma centre with critical injuries. Police are still determining if these two incidents are related.

Anyone with new information about this incident is asked to contact Det. Ormonde of the Central West Division Criminal Investigations Bureau at 1-888-579-1520 ext. 1827.
