Teen dies in hospital after shooting in Scarborough


A boy in his late teens succumbed to his injuries in hospital after a shooting in Scarborough Friday evening.

Toronto police’s homicide unit has taken over the case as it has become the city’s 77th murder of the year.

Police responded to a call at an address on Bellamy Rd, near Eglinton Ave., at 6:45 p.m. after five or six shots were reported.

When they arrived, the boy was on the ground and police performed CPR. Paramedics came to the scene a minute later, and rushed the victim to a trauma centre.

Police said there may be more than one gunman. Two to three males were seen fleeing the area when first-responders arrived.

The victim’s identity has not been released.
