Witnesses in Etobicoke said they saw a man get out of his vehicle and begin shooting at the intersection of Willowridge Road and Eglinton Avenue West around 2:30 p.m. ET, police said on Twitter.
The man was seen shooting into another vehicle.
“We did find someone who’s ‘vital signs absent,’ and now recently, we know that one person has succumbed to their injuries and has been pronounced (dead),” Toronto Police spokesperson Constable David Hopkinson told CNN. “Whether it is that person (with vital signs absent) or one of the other victims, we don’t know.”
