He also saw a black car by Gratia Bakery and Café that also looked like it had been in an accident because its bumper was completely off.

“Aside from the fact that we can confirm that police are at that location, it is way too early in this investigation to provide any details as it is currently unfolding,” said Const. Julie Klaussner with the Ridge Meadows RCMP.

“There is no threat to public safety,” added Klaussner.
