A 27-year-old man is fighting for his life after an overnight shooting near Jane Street and Highway 401.

Emergency crews were called to an apartment building on Falstaff Avenue around 3:30 a.m. Friday, where they found the victim suffering from multiple gunshot wounds.

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

“Although we’re at the infancy stage of this investigation, we believe at this point that the victim was ambushed in the lobby (of the building) by three gunmen,” Insp. Mandeep Mann explained.

The first gunman is described as male, black, in his 20s, and about 170 pounds. He was wearing a white hoodie with black sleeves.

The second suspect is described as male, black, about five feet eight inches tall, in his 20s, and approximately 140 pounds. He was last seen wearing a black hoodie.

The third suspect is described as male, black, in his 20s, five feet 10 inches tall, and about 140 pounds. He was wearing a black North Face jacket.

Police believe a fourth suspect was sitting in the getaway vehicle, which has been described as a light-coloured, four-door sedan.

“All the suspects were last seen in that vehicle, fleeing toward Fallstaff Avenue,” Mann said.

Police are still trying to piece together a motive for the crime and how the events of the incident transpired. They are asking anyone who may have information or security/dashcam video of the area to contact investigators.
