Three people were in custody in connection with a shooting at the Raptors’ NBA championship parade Monday that left four people injured, Toronto police said in a statement. 

Two firearms were recovered, the Toronto police said in a news release that asked for the public’s help with the investigation of the incident. The shooting occurred about 3:45 p.m. ET near Nathan Phillips Square, which marked the end of the parade route. 

Constable David Hopkinson of the Toronto Police Service confirmed to USA TODAY Sports injuries to two of the victims were “considered serious, but not life-threatening.” Hopkinson did not have information on status of the two others injured. 

Hopkinson said that identities of the suspects would not be released until they were charged.
