Don Callis Took Safety After Hearing Gunshots at Raptors Victory Parade

Raptors parade attracts huge crowd in downtown Toronto

At the Toronto Raptors' championship parade on Monday, Leonard took the microphone to speak to the crowd of thousands of fans that had gathered to celebrate with the team.

A sea of people stretching for several kilometres turned out to be part of the moment while a square outside city hall where the parade was to end was filled with fans of all ages.

Jubilant Raptors fans decked out in the team's gear are jamming downtown Toronto this morning as they await the team's victory parade.

Toronto Police said that two people sustained serious but non-life-threatening injuries in the shooting, according to a report from CP24 in Toronto.

"We just saw the girl drop to the floor and the guy running off", Singh told the AP.

Tory said he wanted to thank the Raptor fans who showed up and celebrated peacefully as well as the police for their efforts after the "unfortunate" shooting.

Toronto earned its first National Basketball Association championship after beating the defending champions Golden State Warriors last week in six games. The ceremony was briefly paused to let the crowd know there was an emergency situation but resumed shortly afterwards.

"I hope those found responsible will be held to account to the full extent that the law permits", he said in a statement.

"Toronto, more than a million of us flooded the streets today to celebrate our Raptors, " city councilman Joe Cressy tweeted.

While Raptors fans are feeling confident about the team's chances at signing Kawhi Leonard to a contract extension, Vegas isn't exactly singing the same tune.

The love that Toronto (and all of Canada, really) has for Leonard is beyond obvious, and the smile on his face says it all.

Kelly Hannah-Moffat, University of Toronto vice-president of human resources, asked in a memo that managers and supervisors do their best to accommodate requests for staff to attend the parade.

Leonard's decision to stay with the Raptors may influence the decisions of Green and big man Marc Gasol, who could both leave town as free agents this summer.
