Toronto police are looking for two suspects after a man in a vehicle was shot dead in an Etobicoke shopping plaza on Thursday.

The shooting happened around 12:45 p.m. in the area of Finch Avenue West and Westmore Drive, Toronto police say. 

Det.-Sgt. Al Bartlett, spokesperson for the Toronto Police Service, said people in one vehicle reportedly shot at another vehicle. 

When officers arrived, they found a man with gunshot wounds inside a vehicle. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

The victim has not been identified.

Police say the suspects fled westbound on Finch Avenue in a four-door dark coloured Honda. The suspect vehicle would have some damage to its right rear, Bartlett said.

“We understand that a violent incident like the one that has happened here has a deep impact on the community and is incredibly jarring,” he said.

A number of bullet holes were visible on the driver’s side windshield of a white Ford SUV in the parking lot.

Bartlett said it is still early in the investigation. Anyone with information is asked to contact the police.
