SHOOTING at LUXURY Airbnb in Canada: Man CRITICAL in Toronto

An early morning shooting in Toronto’s Bridle Path neighbourhood has left a man with life-threatening injuries, police and paramedics say.

Emergency crews were called to The Bridle Path, south of Bayview Avenue and York Mills Road, for a report of a shooting at about 6:00 a.m. on Sunday. The shooting occurred while the home was being rented as an Airbnb and it is believed to have occurred outside.

The large, luxurious home was listed on Airbnb, but the company said in an email on Sunday that the listing is no longer available on its platform and the guest who booked the property has been suspended as it “urgently” investigates.
