A 22-year-old Toronto man has been identified as the victim of a fatal shooting in North York on Wednesday night.
Toronto police say they were called to the area of Finch Avenue and Leslie Street at around 8 p.m. for a reported shooting.
When they arrived on scene, a man, who police have now identified as 22-year-old Jeremy Vincent Urbina, was found suffering from apparent gunshot wounds.
He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Police previously told CP24 that the victim, who lived in the area, was shot in a parking lot.
Urbina's family told CTV News Toronto that he had a vibrant energy, and loved the arts and theatre. He was a second-year student at OCAD univeristy and was studying for an exam on Wednesday.
"He's such a good kid. Why would this happen to us, to him," the victim's mother said.
According to investigators, two suspects had their faces concealed as they fled the scene westbound on foot.
Investigators said the first suspect was wearing a dark-coloured hooded sweatshirt and dark-coloured pants. The second suspect was wearing an all-dark clothing.
Police are asking for anyone who witnessed the shooting or has security or dash camera footage of the area to contact them or Crime Stoppers anonymously.
