WATCH: Man shot dead in Regent Park

A man in his 20s is dead after a shooting in Regent Park.

The sound of gunfire echoed near Gerrard St E and Sumach St after 9 p.m. Monday.

As many as seven bullets pierced the white storm door of a townhouse and shattered its glass. On Tuesday morning a television beamed out the news of the day to an empty living room.

Police believe the suspect took off a dark-coloured SUV.

The Regent Park shooting came hours after an apparent deadly shootout in broad daylight near a George Brown College campus near Adelaide St E and George St. Police have called the earlier shooting targeted. They have not ruled out any link between the two murders.
