    TORONTO (Sputnik) - A shooting at a home in the Canadian city of Oshawa left five individuals dead, Ontario's Durham Regional Police said in a statement on Friday.

    "On Friday, September 4, 2020, at approximately 1:20 a.m. [5:20 a.m. GMT], officers responded to a residence on Parklane Avenue in Oshawa after numerous reports of gunshots. Members of the Tactical Support Unit arrived quickly and entered the residence to find five deceased people inside and one adult female who was alive but suffering from a gunshot wound", the statement said.
