Violence disrupted the Toronto Raptors NBA Championship celebration parade at Nathan Phillips Square in Toronto, Canada on Monday. NBA Finals MVP Kawhi Leonard is pictured hoisting his MVP trophy during the parade.

Shots rang out as thousands of fans gathered in Toronto's Nathan Phillips Square to celebrate the Raptors' first NBA championship in franchise history.

Toronto police alerted the public of the shooting as police/EMS responded to reports of 1 woman shot. Panicked fans fled the area and multiple people were injured during the stampede.

Police also report 1 person was stabbed at Eaton Centre Plaza after a fight broke out between a group of men at the entrance to a store. None of the injuries are life threatening.

The shooting incident was announced onstage during the celebration, as players gave their speeches. The celebration continued as police secured the area.

Yahoo News reports Toronto medics transported several patients to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Thousands of fans traveled to the area to celebrate the team's NBA championship. The Raptors defeated defending champs Golden State Warriors in 6 games to win their 1st title.

    There is always ONE IDIOT in the crowd .... This is why I avoid things like this ... stay home and if its important enough its televised ..............

  • Blak

    Never go to an event filled with N words and you will come out alive, always.

  • Gloria

    SMH. Ever since Rolling Loud, I side eye the FUGG out of any event with large crowds. It only takes ONE person to ruin the event for everyone.

  • Chicagowise

    And I JUST said that I don't do parades!

  • Chicagowise

    Black people aren't the only people who act a fool in large crowds.

  • Parent

    I mean what do you expect when you have a crowd this large. Something is bound to happen.

    I love the accent on these Toronto dudes.

  • Blak

    But they ARE the shooters in Toronto...

  • Bree

    It's a shame you can't enjoy a victory parade without some psychopath ruining the day. I remember running from stuff like this as a little girl. I promised myself as an adult I'd be more careful, but these fools today will open fire anywhere. Just gotta stay prayed up!

  • CardiB’sAbs

    We had no problems like this when the Cavs won. That was the one event these bastard thugs respected. They went right back to killing each other the next day.

  • MoniquetheGeek

    Hmm..I think most of the audience (and shooter) at the Route 91 concert were white, no? But go on.

  • Bree

    Really!? I beg to differ.

  • Gloria

    You sound ignant. This happens at events regardless of race.

  • Sushi

    The question would be, how are you using the N word, because I know quite alot of White N words also...

  • Dowoop

    Most of the ppl weren't black clown

  • Dowoop

    1. The shooting didn't stop the celebration and they didn't announce the shooting on stage. They announced there was an emergency and that its being dealt with.
    Two people already arrested.

    2. The stabbing although nearby wasn't at the parade... ??

    That being said, there was no way I was gonna carry my ass down there. Watched from the safety of my living room.

  • Alicia.Ashe

    Idiot hush

  • Dontgetdraggedhoe??

    One of my forever young homegirl caught herself trynna invite me to go to the parade. Bish we’re 37 not 19 and i wish i would step a jimmy choo amongst them posers and wanna be ballers babymamas you got me effed up. She just texted like im okay im okay like girl who was wondering if you were lmao

  • JazzyBossyJen

    Ugh..and at Drake cheesy arse! Like his thirsty self need to keep a bottle of FiJi on deck at all times!

  • luVn_liFe…

    I THOT citizens dont/cant carry firearms in Canada

  • currvalicious

    MUS must be a cracka.

  • Cheese eggs

    The same thing happened at the first warriors parade. Some dummy shot someone. It wasn't near the venue and the crowd didn't hear the shots. I just don't understand why people just can't have a good time?

  • Renee26

    They need to make men's shorts longer.... So the players can have their knees and asses covered at the same time

  • KcoolMuziq

    I can't believe this happened in Toronto!

    Drake LOVE being in the spotlight.

  • Coy little wink

    Lol! I went too ? you ain't never lied

  • Rayne

    I haven’t been to the taste of Chicago since 1994 when it was goodt. I ain’t never going where the crowd goes. Nerp!

  • Mary

    And Canadians think they’re cities are so much safer and better.

  • Topic Influencer

    Oh not we have so much gun control here ass Canada? The horror

  • Topic Influencer

    There was a shooting there too. A Rose here reported it

  • Li-Wright

    Violence is everywhere. Maybe we should follow Chris Rock's suggestion and tax bullets $5000.

  • Li-Wright

    Toronto and Canada is getting bad. Guns guns, gangs, gangs.

  • Li-Wright

    Well their country is better. Violence is very very low.

  • Mary

    Yeah socialism and no right to self defense or guns, and still they have violent cities. And it’s way too cold.

  • Mary

    That would be good at stopping law abiding citizens from having bullets, while all the criminals still have their illegally owned ammunition.

  • Dowoop

    It's hardly ever law abiding citizens shooting ppl.

  • Gloria

    I got caught in a stampede when I went to the taste of Chicago as a teen. Never again.

  • Mielle Downey

    They can't so the criminals do. The is just one of the many shootings by criminals and it is getting worse

  • Rayne

    I’m not going again. The food is too local and I’ve had all of it.

  • luVn_liFe…

    I guess.. what I meant is that they really dont have access to firearms over there maybe Im thinking London

  • WhoKnew

    Update: Police are now saying 4 people were shot. Seriously. Why? What did that accomplish except hurt innocent people and get the fools who did the shooting locked up? SMDH.

  • Raquelle Dellaghetto

    Drake is so wack and Kawhi's woman looks like woof woof.

  • Alextra Ballard

    Sometimes it just best tew stay home.....heyyyy Kawhi!..... looking ? ? like my ex.??

  • Mielle Downey

    Yes they do have access but the can not carry hand guns. You have to have special permission from the RCMP to carry on your body and it can only be given in special circumstances. The ammunition has to be separated from the gun when in transport .
    A knife can only be as long as you middle finger and cannot be spring loaded.

  • Renee Bee

    ???

  • Kimberly King

    Is Kawhi's boo Mexican ?

    Not tryna hear that "violence is everywhere" bull crap when Canadians act like NOTHING happens in their country. I don't recall hearing about shootings at past NBA championship parades

  • Lucky8

    Suky suky now, they done let us in hockey. We will take over, because us black folks we dominate after we integrate. Remember when a bunch of white boys used to run around the basketball courts in track shorts? Where they at?

  • Lucky8

    An isolated event can be understood. Worry about the your next inevitable school shooting that will occurr in your country. Your do called installed leader reversed president Obama's law and gave guns back to the mentally ill. Hint, hint they dont have school shootings in Canada, or the 'shit*ole countries."

  • Grace Turner

    Stop ruining people's fun ???

  • Kimberly King

    First things first babe: Learn how to spell! Secondly, school shootings happen at WHITE schools and white schools ONLY. So therefore that sh*t has nothing to do with the Queen. Thirdly, Canada is still a lame country and that's facts. Begging Kawhi to stay in the country by offering him free food. Lmao just lame. And What kind of loser shoots at a parade where there's innocent children enjoying the scenery? Ain't nobody worried about Canada. Go play in traffic

  • Ruth

    Canada is lame and trump is your president ?? Your country is the laughing stock of the world. African Americans are still treated like slaves so your point is mute

  • Ruth

    Still a hell of a lot of better than your shat country.

  • tintin

    i thought the NBA was about offering perks to players to stay. The U.S does the same thing, don't they? What did our country do to you???

  • Kimberly King

    No babe I'm the Queen. Ain't no point in muting me. I said what I said. AA's are not treated like slaves, and if you are black, you're pathetic for even making a comment like that. I've heard plenty of stories about how blacks are treated in Canada. It wasn't good! Lol Canada is lame. Eat my words and enjoy them like y'all enjoy BAGGED milk and eating moose p*ssy

  • Kimberly King

    Oh, shut up.

  • Vonda K

    Light skin black woman.

  • Vonda K

    Exciting series to watch.
    I loved seeing Serge Ibaka, Fred VanVleet, Kyle Lowry showing off their children throughout the series finals and parade!
    It warmed my heart.

  • tintin

    who pissed in your coffee??? you miserable huh

  • tintin

    you probably don't even have a passport to travel... what you know about anywhere being lame. living up in your rural run down house, probably in michigan somewhere. go kick rocks bitter b

  • CardiB’sAbs

    No there wasn’t. There was a shooting at the casino.

  • CardiB’sAbs

    But you’re right a bastard thug did cause chaos on that day smh

  • Blak

    Just thought I would come back - I told y'all the shooters and stabbers were black and y'all came for me! Since I promised y'all that came for me that you will be disappointed once arrests have been made, I'm here to fulfill that promise - 4 shot, 6 arrests made all suspects are black.

  • Blak

    Kimberly, you're not a Queen unless you're a hood qween. Do you even have a passport? Blacks in the American schools frequently beat kids to death with their bare hands if they are not stabbing them to death over incredibly petty bullshit. You guys act like animals and the last few months in Toronto was probably the first time Kawhi witness what it likes to be an actual human being. Close to 2 million people shut the city down to celebrate a win and the night they won, was incident free I was surrounded by people of all races and we high 5 and embraced each other on winning. I'm sure in the zoo you live in, playing in traffic is most likely what you do as your hobby meanwhile we win and live in peace here

  • Blak

    6 arrests have been made - all black. Whose the cracka now fool?

  • Blak

    You're right because 100% of the arrests made were black

  • Dowoop

    Toronto police Chief Mark Saunders told reporters Tuesday that police are still searching for one more suspect. He’s described as white, between 5-foot-9 and 6 feet, with a large build. He has short, light-brown hair, and was last seen wearing a white button-down T-shirt, Saunders said.

  • Kimberly King

    I'm an engineer. I travel all over the world for work. Not reading the rest of this nonsense. You're worthless

  • Trace da Ace

    well damn....

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    I blame Drake.

  • MNjumpoffacliff

    I remember I had to hide Ju in 2016 at our one and only championship. Even at a once in a lifetime celebratory moment they did f ish....

  • Ice

    Oh shush licedemon.
