A 19-year-old man is in hospital and as many as seven people have been arrested after a shooting outside Ryerson University Friday morning.

Emergency crews were called to the scene on Gould Street just east of Yonge around 4 a.m.

Police said the victim was rushed to hospital with multiple life-threatening gunshot wounds.

Multiple suspects were arrested at the scene. Police said multiple firearms have also been seized.

Dundas subway station was closed for the investigation but has since reopened.

The shooting happened just a block away from Yonge-Dundas Square where thousands of people had gathered overnight to celebrate the Toronto Raptors’ historic NBA Finals win.

Police can’t say if the shooting was related to the celebration or if it was a separate incident.
