Three victims who were rushed to hospital with serious injuries following a stabbing Saturday in Mount Albert, east of Newmarket, are expected to survive, say York Regional Police. They are a two-year-old boy, a four-year-old boy and a 35-year-old woman.

Police were called Saturday to a Ridge Gate Crescent home where they found a 38-year-old woman dead on the porch.

A suspect in the home, a 37-year-old man, was shot and killed during an interaction with police.

Ontario’s Special Investigation Unit is investigating.

Residents in the neighborhood can continue to expect a police presence in the area, however York Regional Police say there is no concern for public safety.
