One man who spoke with CP24 said he was washing his clothes at the laundromat when the gunfire erupted.
"I ran to the back of the laundromat," said the man, who said he heard around 10 gunshots.
The man, who lives near the plaza, said the shooting left him shaken.
"I'm nervous. My heart is pounding right now."
There is no information about possible suspects so far.
