Sister of Toronto politician shot in face
A 45-year-old woman whose brother serves on Toronto's city council is being treated in hospital after being shot in the face Thursday.
Cathy Ford's injuries are not life-threatening, police said.
Her two children, aged 11 and 17, were in their house at the time of the 4 p.m. shooting.
Two men left the scene in a black Jaguar that belongs to the family, police said.
Supt. Ron Taverner said the shooting took place in the kitchen of the home on Weston Wood Road in Etobicoke.
Taverner said he would not describe the shooting as random, but would not say whether the incident was being treated as a home invasion.
Ford's brother, Rob Ford, is a Toronto councillor who arrived at the house shortly after the shooting.
Neighbours said Cathy Ford moved in with her parents after her marriage broke up several years ago, and has lived there with her children ever since.
Her parents are in Florida at the moment, neighbours said Thursday.
Police are asking for the public's help in finding the stolen black Jaguar, which has the licence plate ANLA 869.
