Toronto police have released security camera images of two men they say opened fire at a man outside an apartment building in Lawrence Heights late last Friday.

The shooting happened outside a building near Flemington and Replin roads on Oct. 13.

Three unknown men pulled up to the building shortly after 11 p.m. as the victim, a 24-year-old man, sat on the front steps talking on his phone, according to police.

Two of the men left the vehicle and fired seven shots at the victim from a close range. Several hit the victim.

The men fled the area in the vehicle. The victim, who was able to call for help, was rushed to hospital in life-threatening condition.

"After undergoing several hours of surgeries, he remains in stable condition," police said Thursday in a news release.
