A 23-year-old man has died after a shooting in Toronto’s west end Thursday evening and police say a 17-year-old boy is wanted for first-degree murder.
Emergency crews were called to an apartment building on Panorama Court, near Kipling Avenue and Finch Avenue West, before 8 p.m. with reports of a shooting.
A Toronto Paramedics spokesperson told Global News a man was taken to hospital in life-threatening condition.
Toronto Police Duty Insp. Paul Rinkoff said the man was found shot at least once inside a tow truck. He said the man later died in hospital.
On Friday, police identified the victim as Hashim Kinani.
Homicide squad investigators said on Friday afternoon that it’s not believed Kinani’s death is connected to other shootings involving tow truck operators.
A 17-year-old boy is wanted for first-degree murder and attempted murder. He was temporarily identified under a special court order in accordance with the Youth Criminal Justice Act.
Also, a second unidentified male suspect is wanted. Police said both should be considered “armed, violent and dangerous.”
Anyone with information about the suspects was asked to call 911 immediately. Anyone with information about the investigation was asked to call investigators at 416-808-7400.
