Toronto police have released a series of photos and a video in an effort to identify a suspect involved in a shooting at Yonge-Dundas Square in December.

Most of the photos were taken at a nearby gas station prior to the shooting, police say. The video was captured by a streetcar camera.

At approximately 2 a.m. on Dec. 12, two men approached a group of people standing near the corner of Dundas Street East and Yonge Street, police said in a news release.

The men allegedly attempted to rob the group and a fight broke out, with one of the suspects allegedly opening fire.

One person was shot in the chest. Their condition is unknown.

The suspects then fled on foot, east on Dundas Street.

Police originally released surveillance images of two unidentified suspects, but have since said they believe one is underage.

Investigators are still looking to identify the second suspect.
