Toronto police say two suspects are wanted for first-degree murder in connection with a shooting in the city’s west end earlier this month.

Police said two victims were travelling north on Scarlett Road around 5:30 p.m. on April 3 when another car drove up beside them and the people inside began shooting, striking the victims’ vehicle several times.

The victims then drove to the Tallon Road and Trehorne Drive area, near Royal York Road and Lawrence Avenue West, where 911 was called and they were found by responding officers, police said.

Police said one man suffered non-life-threatening injuries and 21-year-old Toronto resident Habil Abdilahi Hassan died.
