Toronto police are looking for multiple suspects following a brazen daylight shooting at a North York plaza that led to a head-on collision on Tuesday.

Police were called to the area of Jane Street, near Highway 400, on Tuesday, April 9, after receiving reports of shots fired.

When officers arrived at the scene, shell casings were located, and the K9 unit was involved in the search for the suspects, who police say fled the area.

According to police, two groups became involved in a dispute in a plaza in the area, which led to the gunfire.

David Hopkinson, a spokesperson for the Toronto Police, told Daily Hive a man then got into a car and fled the area, striking another vehicle head-on as he fled the scene.

While at the scene, police say they located one person suffering from minor injuries, which is believed to be related to the crash.
