Dramatic video shows Raptors stampede after gunshots

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Crowds of Raptors fans attending a victory parade through Toronto were sent running in fear on Monday after reports of nearby gunfire, as seen in social media and CBC video.

Two people were seriously wounded during a shooting, but neither suffered life-threatening injuries, Toronto police said on Twitter.

Two people have been taken into custody and two firearms were recovered, police said.

The investigation is ongoing.

The shots were fired near Nathan Phillips Square, the parade's final destination, causing a chaotic scene toward the back of the huge crowd.

However, the incident caused only a brief pause in the celebratory speeches, which were still going on.
