Provincial police say one of three people injured in a shooting on a Toronto-area highway on Friday remains in hospital.

Investigators say two men and a woman were taken to hospital after the 3:20 a.m. shooting on Highway 401 in Pickering, Ont.

One of the men is still being treated for serious injuries, while the other two victims have been released.

Sergeant Kerry Schmidt says police are speaking to witnesses as they try to figure out how the incident unfolded.

Sgt. Schmidt says provincial police received 25 calls about gun-related incidents on Ontario highways in the past year, ranging from shootings to people brandishing the weapons.

This is the second such shooting in recent weeks, with Toronto police saying three men were shot in a car on Highway 400 earlier this month – one fatally.

Editor’s note: (Dec. 20, 2019): A previous version of this story said the incident was within the city of Toronto. In fact, it was east of the city limits.
