Three women and one man are confirmed injured following a shooting at The Mansion (Dinardo’s) on Friday night.

Five male suspects, who were later arrested in Richmond Hill, fled from the scene in a white Porche. Police are also seeking the public’s help in identifying a male seen living in the area. In a statement released Saturday, York Regional Police ask that the individual, or anyone who can identify him, contact the #1 District Criminal Investigations Bureau at 1-866-876-5423 x7141, or anonymously call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.

York Regional Police issued an image of this suspect on Saturday morning.

The public is advised not to approach this individual and contact the police immediately if seen.

York Regional Police were called to The Mansion just after 10 p.m. on Canada Day, responding to a shooting at a “well-attended” gathering at the Industrial Parkway South events centre.

One person was taken to Sunnybrook trauma centre with serious but non-life threatening injuries, while another individual was processed at the scene and taken to Southlake Regional Health Centre with minor injuries.

According to Duty Inspector Bellman of the York Regional Police, two further victims came forward later on Friday night, arriving on their own at Markham-Stouffville Hospital, both with minor injuries.

Shortly after midnight, Inspector Bellman said four suspects had been arrested and Police believed they were looking for a fifth.

“The four suspects that are in custody were arrested in Richmond Hill,” said Inspector Bellman. “A witness followed them from the scene and our air support and officers were able to arrest them in a vehicle at Richmond Hill.”

As the shooting took place in Aurora, the arrests made in Richmond Hill, and two of the four victims turning up at Markham-Stouffville, York Regional Police are working through the night on “a number of different scenes.”

Although Inspector Bellman noted it is “possible” more victims might be out there, he said that after two hours following the incident “we are confident we have everybody.”
