Toronto police said a man was in critical condition after a gunbattle on Monday afternoon.
Toronto Police Const. David Hopkinson said an officer was driving in the area of Alameda Avenue and Gloucester Grove, near Allen Road and Eglinton Avenue West, around 3:45 p.m. when they were marked by someone who said that a man was bleeding a lot.
"The officers rushed to the man," Hopkinson said. "It looked like he was suffering from gunshot wounds."
The paramedics said the victim, who is believed to be in her 20s, was taken to hospital with serious injuries.
Police said a black vehicle was seen leaving the area.
"It looks like the suspect involved in this shooting may have gotten out of a black vehicle just before the shooting, and got back in the car and fled the scene," Hopkinson said.
