One of the three shooting victims of a drive-by shooting on Highway 400 Saturday night was pronounced dead in hospital this morning.

He's been identified as 28 year-old Terrence Agtual.

Toronto police say they were called to a gas station in the city's north end just before 7 p.m., after the three people who were shot made it off the highway to report what happened.

They say the driver was able to get to the gas station, near Finch Avenue and Weston Road, despite having been shot while behind the wheel.

Speaking to reporters Satruday night, Duty Insp. Stacey Davis confirmed the shooting occurred on the southbound lanes of the 400 somewhere between Steeles Avenue and Finch Avenue West.

The victims are described as one male in his 30's, the other two in their 20's.

Davis says police don't yet have a suspect description.
