Toronto police say they’re looking for help in identifying a suspect after a shooting earlier this month at a party with hundreds of people in attendance.

Police said in a news release Monday that officers were called at 3:38 a.m. on Oct. 16 to the John Street and Adelaide Street West area for a shooting.

The statement said officers arrived at a vacant space in a building “that appeared to have been used as a venue for a party.”

A man in his 30s who had been shot was found inside. Paramedics took him to hospital with life-threatening injuries.
