Police have identified the man critically injured after an assault in the city’s downtown core early Tuesday as Toronto-based lawyer David Shellnutt.
A Toronto police spokesperson told Global News officers and paramedics were called to Queen Street West near Bathurst Street at around 12:35 a.m.
The man was involved in a fight and was knocked to the ground, the spokesperson said.
In surveillance video shared with Global News Wednesday afternoon, a man can be seen grabbing a large garbage bag from the side of the road before appearing to throw it. The man can be seen running the opposite direction as two men chased him.
