Toronto police say one man is dead and three others have been hurt after a string of shootings in a violent night across the city.

Police say the first incident happened around 8:30 p.m. when multiple shots were heard near Gosford Boulevard and Shoreham Drive, just west of Jane Street.

Police say two victims were located with gunshot wounds, one suffering from life-threatening injuries.

One man was pronounced dead on scene.

The second victim, a man in his 20s, was taken to hospital in serious, but non-life-threatening, condition.

A silver car was seen fleeing the area.

Less than an hour later, police responded to another shooting in North York, near Futura Drive and Driftwood Avenue.

Officers say shots were fired towards a home, where a man was shot inside, and was rushed to hospital.

Multiple suspects fled the scene in a car.

This comes after a previous incident around 6:30 p.m. when several shots were fired near a plaza on Driftwood Avenue and Jane.

No victims were located and it’s unclear if the pair of shootings are connected.

Scarborough shooting leaves one man in critical condition

A separate, unrelated shooting happened around 7:30 p.m. after police were called following reports of shots fired near Lawrence Avenue and Galloway Road in Scarborough.

Officers found a male suffering from serious injuries. They also report a light-coloured vehicle was seen driving from the area.

The man is in life-threatening condition and has been rushed to hospital.

Police are asking anyone with information on either incident to contact them.
