Early morning shootout in downtown Toronto

Yup. Who needs gun control. More policing is the answer.

Police are looking for as many as four gunmen after a wild shootout in the entertainment district early this morning that sent a bystander to hospital.

Investigators believe the shooting was spurred by a dispute that began either inside or just outside the D.N.A. nightclub, on Adelaide St. near Peter St., at around 3 a.m.

The fight ended in the street in front of the club, where police say members of two groups fled after an exchange of gunfire that struck an innocent bystander. Polic have found 27 shell casings at the scene.

Local businesses are being canvassed to see if footage from their surveillance cameras offers any clues.
