Maple Leafs Mitch Marner Carjacked at Gunpoint

Toronto Maple Leafs forward Mitch Marner and a close friend were victims of a random carjacking outside a Cineplex theater. The Toronto Sun was first to report the news.

A absolute scary scene in Etobicoke, ON as Marner and his friend were approached by multiple armed suspects according to the Sun's report:

“It happened at the Cineplex theatre on The Queensway,” said a police source. Toronto Police tweeted about a carjacking at The Queensway and Islington Ave. at 7:46 p.m., saying a man was robbed of a Black Range Rover by three suspects with the use of two handguns as well as a knife. According to a source, Marner was going to a movie with a friend when “the guys approached wearing masks and said they wanted the vehicle. Mitch said, ‘go ahead and take it.”’ The source said while weapons were involved, Marner and his friend did not have a gun pointed directly at their heads. “The suspects did not know it was Marner,” said the source. “They were only interested in the Range Rover, which they can quickly sell out of country.”

Shocking stuff, thankfully everyone is ok.
