Toronto police are searching for the gunman involved in a fatal shooting in the Rexdale area tonight. 

Paramedics confirmed that an adult was pronounced dead when they arrived at the scene near Humber College Boulevard and Windwood Drive.

A police spokesman could not provide a description of the suspect, nor could he say whether the shooting happened inside a residence on Alba Place or out on the street. 

He wouldn't say exactly where police were searching, but did say that the canine unit has been called in to help.

Neither police nor paramedics could confirm the age of the victims.
