Man killed in Yonge-Dundas Square shooting

News Staff | posted Thursday, May 31st, 2018

Toronto police are searching for as many as four armed suspects after a man was shot dead at Yonge-Dundas Square.

Police were called to the square, on Yonge Street near Dundas Street, after gunshots rang out just after 11 p.m. on Wednesday.

When paramedics arrived at the scene, they found a man with critical injuries. He was rushed to hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

An off-duty supervisor with Toronto Paramedics heard the shots and was one of the first on the scene.

Police say there was some sort of dispute before the shooting, and three to four suspects fled the scene. So far, there is no update on suspect descriptions.

CityNews reporter Ginella Massa witnessed the aftermath of the the shooting from CityNews headquarters and said she heard a series of shots that sounded like fireworks.

“We saw people running away from Yonge Dundas Square and a few minutes later I saw security running towards the victim,” she said. “We saw a man on the ground and people started crowding around him. It looked like security guards were performing CPR on him before paramedics arrived”

Emergency task force officers along with K-9 units were called to the scene and were seen walking north on Victoria Street.
