Durham police are searching for suspects after a man was shot in Ajax Sunday night.

Emergency crews were called to the scene on Hibbard Drive, near Rossland Road and Harwood Avenue, just after 9 p.m. for reports of gunfire in the area.

According to police, the 39-year-old victim was found in his SUV.

He was rushed to a Toronto trauma centre with life-threatening injuries.

Police said that evidence was found that indicated several shots had been fired.

Witnesses told police a dark-coloured vehicle was seen driving away around the time of the shooting.
