Police say a man is dead after he was found in a crashed vehicle with apparent gunshot wounds in Etobicoke on Wednesday evening.

Officers responded to reports of a vehicle crashing into a tree at the intersection of Islington Avenue and St Andrews Boulevard just after 6 pm.

When police arrived on the scene, they located the male victim without vitals inside the vehicle. He had “apparent gunshot wounds.”

Police said the victim was pronounced dead at the scene. Investigators didn’t say when the man was shot or provide any information on his identity.

As police investigated, Islington Avenue was closed in both directions from Kingsview Boulevard to St Andrews Boulevard just north of Dixon Road and drivers were asked to use an alternate route. All roads were re-opened just after 2 am.

Toronto police’s homicide unit has now taken over the investigation.

This shooting is the city’s 93 homicide of the year.

Anyone with any information is urged to call investigators at 416-808-7400.
