At least 6 shots fired in deadly downtown Toronto shooting
The shooting happened in an alley just east of Parliament St., south of Shuter St., just before 3 p.m.
“One male victim in his 20s was involved and has succumbed to his injuries and we are looking for three male suspects,” Toronto Police Sgt. Corey Crawford said.
“We don’t have a lot of information but can confirm at least six shots were fired.”
Homicide Det. Tam Bui said police didn’t know the victim’s identity. “We are working with witnesses to confirm the ID,” he said.
Four schools in the area were placed in lockdown, including Lord Dufferin, St. Paul, Nelson Mandela and a daycare. Students were allowed to leave escorted by a guardian.
Descriptions of the suspects haven’t been released.
Bui said one man seen fleeing the scene was taken into custody, but it was determined he wasn’t involved.
