A 61-year-old woman who was shot and killed after an incident in Toronto’s Riverdale neighbourhood Saturday night, has now been identified as 61-year-old, Peggy Ann Smith.
Police responded to calls of shots fired just after 6:00 P.M. near Dundas Street East and Munro Street, east of the Don River.
Detectives assigned to the case believe it’s unlikely the deceased woman was the intended target.
Police say two young males, believed to be armed, are the prime suspects in the shooting. Witnesses say they fled the scene on foot northbound towards Dundas Street.
Anyone with information is asked to call police at 55 Division (416-808-5500) or Crime Stoppers.
