Man has life-threatening injuries after shooting in Toronto's east-end
A man is in hospital after an early morning shooting in Toronto’s Danforth neighbourhood.
At around 4 a.m., Toronto Police responded to reports of a shooting on Stephenson Avenue, near Danforth Avenue and Main Street.
Police say a 25-year-old man was walking home with a “few friends” when they were approached by another man.
“It sounds like a robbery took place just south of Danforth on Main which sounds like it escalated into a shooting,” Toronto Police Duty Inspector Michael Williams told CP24 from the scene.
The 25-year-old man was rushed to a trauma centre with life-threatening injuries.
The suspect fled the scene.
No other individuals were injured in the incident.
Police say the suspect is described as a dark male in his early 20s, who was wearing a black winter jacket, a black hoodie and had his face covered with a balaclava.
Officers are on scene investigating.
“We know it will be traumatizing for our community to wake up to police cars on their street and we’re looking for anyone with information.”
