Police in northern Ontario say a man has died after an armed robbery at a gas station in the capital of Ontario.
A man, in his 30s, was shot during the attack on the BP station on Main Street in Toronto early Saturday morning.
He was taken to hospital with life-threatening injuries.
The RCMP says the man was shot by two men in a car.
Toronto police said they were investigating the incident.
Toronto Police Chief Mark Saunders said in a statement late Saturday that the suspect was armed with a handgun, but it wasn’t immediately clear whether he was carrying a weapon.
The shooting occurred in a shopping centre parking lot on Main St. and was caught on surveillance cameras, Saunders said.
The suspects are described as white, about 30 years old, wearing a black jacket, black pants and a black hat.
Toronto Mayor John Tory said he’s been in touch with police and city councillors.
He urged people to stay in their homes.
He says residents are safe and police are doing their best to prevent the type of tragedy that occurred.
The investigation into the incident is ongoing.
The man was taken into custody without incident.
Police are urging anyone with information to contact them at 416-808-3131.
