Emergency crews were called to Lansdowne Avenue and College Street at around 3 a.m.

Toronto paramedics said two young males were taken to hospital in serious condition.

Police said two other young people ran away but were eventually found. They were taken to hospital by paramedics with minor injuries as a precaution.

All four injured people are either 13 or 14 years old, police said.
