One Redditor combed Twitter to build a surprisingly vivid account of the Scarborough shooting

This morning, Police Chief Bill Blair briefed the media about last night’s gun fight in Scarborough that killed two and left 21 others with gunshot wounds. He confirmed that two shooters began firing at each other around 10:40 p.m., sending a block party near Morningside and Lawrence into chaos. Blair also said there are “strong indications” that gangs were involved and that the threat of retaliations is high. Those looking for more details may want to consult this incredibly detailed account of the night, pieced together by a Redditor who scoured Twitter for relevant tweets. As the user points out, the information in the tweets can’t all be verified; however, the account forms a clearer picture of whose party it was, what happened, who was hurt—and why retaliatory shootings seem likely.
