A man has died and a woman is in life-threatening condition after a shooting in central Toronto Tuesday afternoon, officials say.
Emergency crews were called to the area of Dufferin Street and Glen Park Avenue, south of Lawrence Avenue West, at around 3:30 p.m.
Toronto police said two people were found in a pickup truck with gunshot wounds.
Toronto paramedics rushed the woman to Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre with a police escort. A spokesperson told Global News the woman had life-threatening injuries.
Coun. Mike Colle, who represents the neighbourhood where the shooting occurred, said a neighbour and a cafe owner tried unsuccessfully to perform CPR on the male victim. He has since been identified as 19-year-old Trong (Daniel) Phan of Markham.
Officers are looking for a male suspect who was last seen wearing a grey sweatsuit with a hood. It’s believed they left the area in a grey hatchback vehicle.
