Toronto police have one person in custody after a shooting in downtown Toronto.

Emergency crews were called to King Street West and Brant Street, near Spadina Avenue, around 3:20 a.m. on Tuesday.

A man in his 20s was rushed to hospital with serious gunshot wounds.

After shots were fired, a suspect vehicle – a white Chevy Cruze – was seen heading westbound along King. It hit the back of a TTC service truck and came to a stop at Portland Street.

Three suspects got out of the vehicle and tried to flee the scene, but one person was arrested.

King is closed between Brant and Portland for the police investigation.
