Three people were killed in an incident east of downtown Toronto Thursday afternoon and police say a crossbow was found at the scene.
Toronto police officers responded to Lawndale Road, in the Eglinton Avenue East and Markham Road area, just before 1 p.m. for a reported stabbing.
Police initially said on Twitter that officers found two victims without vital signs, but Toronto Paramedic Services confirmed to Global News they treated two males and a female at the scene who were later pronounced dead.
Const. Jenifferjit Sidhu told Global News investigators had recovered a crossbow at the scene, but could not confirm if it was used as a weapon in the incident.
Police said that one person is in custody. A number of the surrounding roads in the area have been closed pending further investigation.
No information has been released on the identities of the person in custody or the deceased.
