TORONTO, July 31 (UPI) — A shooting incident involving Toronto’s police just after the city’s Caribbean Carnival parade left one man dead and two other people wounded, officials said.

The names of the 30-year-old man who died, and the woman and man who were wounded, had not been released, the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. reported.

The province’s Special Investigations Unit told the CBC Sunday that while city police officers had “interacted” with three men just prior to the Saturday night shooting, it was unclear whether the officers fired the bullets that led to the fatality and other injuries.

A festival organizer said the shooting “sad” and “shocking,” but noted it took place after the parade had ended.
