A 35-year-old man is in hospital with life-threatening injuries after a shooting outside of a bar in Scarborough.

Emergency crews were called to the scene at Markham Road and Painted Post Drive, just south of Ellesmere Road, around 2:45 a.m. Monday.

Police said the man was shot once in the abdomen while in a parking lot. The victim then made his way inside the bar.

Investigators found multiple shell casings at the scene and it’s possible there was more than one gun involved.

There has been no word on suspects but a vehicle was seen driving away at the time of the shooting.

Police have the area taped off while they continue to investigate.
