Shooting on Greenview?

I just happened to be walking home from the Morse red line when I saw CPD had like 20 squad cars on Farewell & Greenview with the whole block and intersection cordoned off. It looks as if someone just got shot. Am I correct in that assumption? If so, anyone have any info?

  • Ingvald Doing my part to do no harm

    2 young male's were shot. Earlier today in the alley that runs parallel to Morse and from Farwell to Morse shots were also fired.

  • Okay. Because this shooting looks as if it happened recently. Like around 10:30. They had Pratt to Farewell blocked off on Greenview. No police in the alleys. And there was what seemed to be a body in the street on Farewell. So possibly a separate shooting?

  • D Hype yes there was 2nd shooting on Farwell and Greenview recently 2 people where wounded.
