Two men are dead after a shooting in northwest Toronto on Tuesday night.

The shooting happened in a courtyard outside 306 Grandravine Drive, in the area of Jane Street and Finch Avenue West.

Officers from 31 Division were at the scene of a non-fatal shooting on nearby Venetian Court when they heard gunshots shortly before 9:30 p.m.

"The officers were over on Venetian Court, when they heard those gunshots, they raced over here trying to save the lives of the two people that they found," Duty Insp. Mandeep Mann told reporters Tuesday night.

The officers found both men suffering from gunshot wounds.

Toronto paramedics took the victims to hospital. One man, who was without vital signs when transported, was pronounced dead in hospital, Mann said.

Police confirmed early Wednesday that the second man had also died.

Police have not released the men's ages. No suspect information was immediately available.

Police dogs from the K-9 unit were at the scene late Tuesday, as were numerous officers who canvassed the area for witnesses and surveillance footage. Anyone with information is asked to call police or Crime Stoppers.
