A man is in critical condition in hospital following an overnight shooting in the east end of the city — one of two in the Toronto area on Saturday.
Police say they were called by hospital security just after 4 a.m. about a man had been brought in with a gunshot wound.
Police traced the shooting back to an abandoned residence in a plaza in the area of Eglinton Avenue East and Brimley Road in Scarborough.
No further details have been released about a motive or suspect.
