A one-year-old boy was shot dead, while a five-year-old girl, an 11-year-old boy and a 23-year-old man were injured, Toronto Superintendent of Police Ron Taverner said.

Police are searching for several suspects.
“At the moment, we are making interpretations of the suspects and at this time we can not provide anything definite,” said the Toronto Superintendent of Police.
Ron Taverner added that “those who were shot did not appear to be particularly targeted” and that “they were there and were shot by gunmen”. ”
Police are asking anyone with information about the shooting to come.
“It’s a tragedy,” said Inspector Kelly Skinner. “Three children were shot dead here tonight. We need your help. ”
