The officers were called to the area at approximately 7:53 pm on Thursday for reporting a suspect. At some point during the investigation, shots were fired.
The police would not confirm who opened the fire.
A special investigative unit has been called to investigate – just as whenever the police in Ontario is involved in a situation where someone is seriously injured or killed or accused of a sexual assault.
Residents are asked to avoid this area.
OC Transpo says the Elmvale transit station is closed until further notice.
