From It's Always Sunny in Detroit:

Following the Blue Jays' 7-4 loss to the Red Sox on Saturday, Toronto third baseman Brett Lawrie took a trip past the Eaton Centre mall in Toronto. Per his Twitter handle, he was near what he thought was a shooting.

City News in Toronto confirmed there was a shooting that killed one man and injured several others.

Below is Lawrie's account of what he witnessed:

After sending the two tweets seen above, Lawrie then said "This is crazy. ... I hope everyone is ok," and "This is serious .. Oh my god" after seeing police and an ambulance arrive at the scene. He shared the following photo of what he saw:

He capped it all off by saying he was "rattled" following the shooting. It's easy to see why -- one man was killed and several others were injured as a result of the shooting, which police believe was intentional.
