Don Callis On Shooting At NBA Championship Victory Parade For The Toronto Raptors (6/17/2019)

The pro wrestling world was tied-into, and affected by, the tragic shooting at the Toronto Raptors' victory parade in Canada on Monday.

The parade was held to celebrate the franchise's first-ever NBA Championship, as the Toronto Raptors defeated the Golden State Warriors in six games (4-2) to become the NBA Champions of 2019.

IMPACT Wrestling Vice President, New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW) announcer and longtime pro wrestling executive / on-air performer Don Callis was among the 1.5 million fans present at the victory parade today when shots were fired, injuring two civilians in attendance.

Callis took to social media to note that he got to safety in a nearby basement with several other "terrified" fans.

"Shots fired in Eaton Centre and I am trapped with terrified people in the basement," wrote Callis via his official Twitter page (@CyrusOverHuge) on Monday afternoon.

Toronto police have reported that the situation is an ongoing investigation but revealed that they currently have two suspects in custody, and have recovered two firearms at the scene.

Callis has not yet posted an update on Twitter since the aforementioned tweet quoted above.
