A man is dead after he was shot early Wednesday morning outside a bar along the Danforth.
Toronto police say that sometime after 3 a.m., they were called to 1232 Danforth Avenue, outside of a bar, for a report of a shooting.
A witness told CP24 several people were playing billiards in a bar when one man, believed to be in his 20s, went outside for a smoke and gunshots rang out.
A Duty Inspector told CP24 that they arrived to find a male lying on the sidewalk without vital signs suffering from multiple gunshot wounds.
An officer attempted to perform CPR but could not revive him.
He was rushed to a hospital trauma centre where he was later pronounced dead.
A detective said they are looking for up to three males wearing dark clothing who fled the scene in a car.
Police said the victim is in his mid-20s and lived in Toronto.
Danforth Avenue was closed between Greenwood Avenue and Linnsmore Crescent to allow for an investigation until about 7 a.m.
