Investigators with the York Regional Police #5 District are seeking two suspects and witnesses following a shooting that occurred in the City of Markham.
On Sunday, November 15, 2020, at approximately 11 p.m., officers responded to a residence on Solace Road, which is in the area of Major Mackenzie Drive East and Donald Cousens Parkway, for reports of sounds of gunshots. When officers arrived, they found multiple bullet holes in the front door of a residence. Officers spoke to the occupants of the home who were not injured.
Investigators believe that shortly before 11 p.m., two people approached the residence and fired multiple gunshots then ran away.
The first suspect is described as a male wearing a grey track suit with white running shoes and armed with a handgun. The second suspect is described as a male wearing all black with white running shoes and armed with a handgun.
Officers are asking any witnesses who may have been in the area at the time who have not yet spoken to police to please come forward. Investigators are also seeking any video surveillance from the area or anyone that may have captured dashcam video on the roadways in the area.
