Toronto police say they arrested a man in his 20s and seized a loaded gun after a number of shots were fired in an east end neighbourhood early Sunday.

Staff Sgt. Al Love, spokesperson for Toronto Police Service's 54 Division, said police received a report about "multiple shots fired" in the area of Victoria Park Avenue and Parma Court, near O'Connor Drive, at about 1:30 a.m.

"We got a call about the sound of gunshots," Love said. 

When officers arrived on the scene, they found a man with a gun. Police arrested him and took the gun, which was a .38 calibre, according to a tweet by Insp. Paul MacIntyre.

Several shell casings were found on the ground in the residential area.

No one was believed to be injured in the shooting but Love said police planned to canvas the area again on Sunday morning to make sure there were no victims.

"Nobody was injured as far as we know," he said. 

Love said charges are pending and the suspect is likely facing a number of weapons charges. He was expected to appear in court on Sunday.

Anyone with information is urged to call (416) 808-5400.
