A shooting was confirmed by authorities at Toronto’s Yorkdale Mall on Thursday afternoon, causing an evacuation, and police are looking for dual suspects.

The two suspects are males in their 20s and one may be carrying a handgun, Toronto Police tweeted, after earlier reporting a discharge in the mall.

Police were called at about 2:50 p.m. for reports of gunshots, spokesperson Caroline de Kloet told CBC Toronto, but no casualties have been reported.

The Toronto Transit Commission tweeted that subway trains on line 1 are not stopping at Yorkdale due to police activity.

Metrolinx’s GO Transit continues to operate their bus services nearby, but no one is allowed inside the mall.

Yorkdale Mall is expect to reopen at 10 a.m. on Friday.
