Autopsy planned on woman found near Dufferin Mall

An autopsy will be done Sunday on a woman who died in hospital after she was found bleeding in a west-end laneway.

Around 6:30 p.m. Friday, the woman, 41, was found with apparent gunshot wounds in a lane off Chesley Avenue, near Dufferin and College streets.

She was taken to St. Michael’s Hospital where she died.

There are reports the murder may be connected to a shooting early Saturday in Richmond Hill, but police have not confirmed any link.

A man is in critical condition after that incident, and the province’s Special Investigations Unit has taken over the case.
