Toronto police say two men died in hospital after a shooting early Tuesday.

Police said the shooting happened outside on the street near Lawrence Avenue and Hickory Tree Road, near Weston Road, at around 4:40 a.m.

Two men were found with multiple gunshot wounds and both were rushed to hospital, police said.

Both were pronounced dead a short time later.

Det. Sgt. Aaron Akeson with Toronto police’s homicide unit told reporters their identities will not be released because officers are still notifying next of kin.

Akeson said the victims were in their 20s or early 30s.

Investigators said it is unknown if anyone else was involved in the shooting. Anyone with information is asked to contact them.
