Police say suspect carjacked a black Toyota Corolla before fleeing the area
A man has died in what police say was a targeted shooting in northwest Toronto on Monday night.
The gunfire happened outdoors around 8:35 p.m. in the area of Jane Street and Wilson Avenue.
Police said callers reported hearing multiple shots in the area. When officers arrived, they found a man with gunshot wounds.
Paramedics pronounced him dead at the scene.
The victim has not been identified, according to Duty Insp. Paul Krawczyk of the Toronto Police Service.
"We believe this to be an isolated incident," Krawczyk told reporters at the scene.
Police say the suspect fled through the parking lot of the North York Sheridan Mall before carjacking a vehicle, which is described as a black 2022 Toyota Corolla, with the Ontario licence plate CVZW 153.
Police are searching for the car, and have asked the public to call 911 immediately and not approach it if spotted.
The homicide unit has taken over the investigation.
"It's very brazen, it's concerning," Krawczyk said of the shooting.
"We take this very seriously and will be investigating this as well as we can to have a successful outcome."
Police appealed to anyone with dashboard camera or cell phone video that may be relevant to come forward.
