Man shot dead in drive-by attack while walking partner, infant to vehicle: police

Toronto police say a 27-year-old man was killed in an apparent drive-by shooting Thursday morning as he approached his car with his partner and newborn child. 

The woman and child were not injured in the gunfire.

The daylight shooting took place around 9:17 a.m. in the area of Lawrence Avenue West and Jane Street, police said. 

Officers are now searching for a four-door sedan with two men inside, last seen heading east. 

A forensics team is poring over the crime scene. Insp. Paul Rinkoff told reporters multiple shots were fired. Rinkoff wouldn’t rule out the possibility that the man who was killed returned fire at some point.

Rinkoff called the shooting “brazen” and “horrific,” and said it took place as other parents were taking their kids to school or going to work.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police at 416-808-2222.
