Was it a hit and run or murder?

Toronto Police are trying to figure it out.

A teenaged boy, believed to be 16-years-old, is dead after being hit by a pickup truck near Woodbine and O'Connor.

It happened around 2 o'clock this morning and police say the teen was on the sidewalk at the time.

Later on Monday, Toronto police updated the case and confirmed they're treating the alleged hit-and-run as a homicide.

Investigators say the incident happened early Monday morning when a pedestrian was hit by an SUV.

He died after being taken to hospital.

They're looking for two people were inside the SUV at the time of the crash.

Investigators are asking anyone with information to come forward.
