Toronto Police Inspector Darren Alldrit was on the scene early this morning and said a RIDE spot check was happening around the corner on Spadina south of King at the same time.
“They also heard numerous gunshots and immediately ran to the scene where they located a male and female who had suffered gunshot wounds. Both of these victims were transported to hospital and unfortunately, the male succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced (dead) at hospital. The female, I understand, has non-life threatening injuries. I have no suspect information at this time,” Alldrit explained.
Wednesday morning’s shooting death marks Toronto’s 95th homicide of the year.
Tuesday morning, Toronto Police say a 28 year old man was shot and killed while sitting in his car in the Jane and Finch area.
