Three people have died after two separate shootings in opposite ends of Toronto Sunday night, police say.

A spokesperson told Global News emergency crews were first called to a plaza on Danforth Road near Saverin Street, north of Eglinton Avenue East, just after 10:35 p.m. with reports gunshots were fired.

After police and paramedics arrived, the two victims died a short time later.

In an update Monday evening, investigators identified the victims as 23-year-old Mohamed Moallim and 25-year-old Daniel Fung. Both men lived in Toronto.

The shooting was the second major one in less than a year at the same commercial complex. In late August, two people were seriously injured after they were shot outside a bar.
