A 27-year-old man was killed, and two other men in their 20s injured, following a triple shooting in Regent Park on Saturday night.
Police officers were called to Oak Street and Sumach Street shortly before 9 p.m. on Saturday, according to Toronto Police Service duty inspector Michael Williams.
Williams said they found the three men, all suffering from gunshot wounds. One man was pronounced dead at the scene, he said, while a second was rushed to hospital in life-threatening condition. The third man was shot in the "lower body" and is in stable condition, Williams said.
Police have identified the victim who died at the scene as 27-year-old Thane Murray of Toronto.
Per the preliminary investigation, he said, it appears that four men armed with guns opened fire on the three men. Police say there is no indication any of the three men returned fire.
"The scene itself is quite extensive," said Williams, who estimated that around 50 shots were fired — "a ridiculous amount of gunfire for such a high-populated area."
Police say they're searching for four suspects who were wearing dark clothes and masks that hid their faces.
Toronto police's homicide unit has taken over the investigation and is looking for potential witnesses.
Police are appealing for information from community members. The neighbourhood is well-populated, and the shooting took place near a playground and several apartment complexes.
