Escorted by several police officers, the mayor toured the housing complex where two people were killed and 24 wounded — 23 by gunfire, one by trampling — in a deadly shootout at a crowded house party. “I am shocked and disgusted by this senseless act of violence,” the mayor said.Just six weeks ago, in the wake of a mall shooting that claimed two lives and left five innocent bystanders hurt, Ford assured citizens that Toronto was still a “safe” city.

The party was promoted on twitter as a, “Hennessey Block party.” With a dangerous mix of alcohol, rivals and a lack of security violence can always break out. Sad to see acts of senseless violence like this take place, especially with a toddler being wounded and a fourteen year old girl losing her life. Hopefully police will keep the upcoming, “Caribana,” festival safe for everyone.
