Gunshots spray tow truck in Richmond Hill grocery store parking lot

Recommended Posts

Another violent incident involving tow trucks in Richmond Hill has police seeking witnesses.


Shots were fired at a tow truck in the parking lot of a grocery store located in the High Tech Road and Bayview Avenue area March 2 at around 7 p.m.


Police investigators believe multiple tow trucks were in the parking lot when an occupant in one of them fired several shots at a black tow truck. Police say people involved in the shooting fled the area.


Police said shortly after officers arrived on scene, one of the tow trucks involved returned to the scene with several bullet holes. Police located several shell casings in the parking lot.


The driver was not injured.


The encounter appears to be the latest in an escalating series of violent incidents in what has been described as a tow truck turf war.


Officers are asking any witnesses who may have been in the area at the time and have not yet spoken to police to come forward. Investigators are also seeking any video surveillance from the area or anyone that may have captured dash cam video on the roadways in the area of any of the incidents.


Anyone with information is asked to contact the York Regional Police No. 2 District Criminal Investigations Bureau at 1-866-876-5423, ext. 7241, or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS, or by leaving an anonymous tip online at www.1800222tips.com.
