Police: 4 shot, 3 arrested at Raptors rally in Toronto

UNDATED (AP) _ Toronto police say four people were shot and wounded at a rally for the NBA champion Raptors, and three people were arrested.

Droves of Raptors fans ran from the shooting in a stampede from the City Hall square, which was packed with tens of thousands of people. Police Chief Mark Saunders says four people suffered gunshot wounds but said none of the injuries were life-threatening. Two guns were recovered.

During a speech from one of the team owners, the host of the rally interrupted the proceedings to alert the crowd to an emergency and asked for calm. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Toronto Mayor John Tory, NBA Finals MVP Kawhi Leonard and other players were among those on stage at the time.
