Shooting suspect arrested after highway chase north of Toronto


The Toronto Police said the man had previously attacked a 60-year-old woman and opened fire on a woman in the north of the metropolis at about 6:30 am on Wednesday morning.

Police said the suspect fled the area in a vehicle and shots were fired at officers responding to the scene.

The suspect apparently fled the scene and, a short time later, several police cars were seen speeding down northbound Highway 400.
