Toronto police have identified a 16-year-old male fatally shot in the city’s west end late Sunday night.
It happened on the 19th floor of an apartment building on Weston Road near Lawrence Avenue just before midnight.
Police say they plan to release a surveillance camera image showing a male suspect sought in connection with the shooting sometime today.
"I want to confirm that I have the right person before I release that image or even give a description at this point in time," Det. Sgt. Peter Trimble told CP24 Monday morning.
According to Trimble, the victim was not known to police.
A post-mortem examination will be conducted.
Anyone with information is asked to contact police at 416-808-7400 or Crime Stopper 416-222-TIPS (8477).
