injuries are not life-threatening

Toronto police are investigating a shooting on the Gardiner Expressway that occurred in the early hours of Wednesday morning, which left one man injured.

According to police, the incident took place around 12:30 a.m. in the eastbound lanes of the highway near Spadina Avenue. Officers say that following what “appears to be a road rage incident,” occupants of one car began shooting at another vehicle.

A male victim in his 20s sustained a gunshot wound to his leg and made his way to St. Michael’s Hospital. Police have confirmed that his injuries are not life-threatening. The victim’s vehicle, which was found at the hospital, had multiple bullet holes.

Following the incident, members of the Toronto Police’s traffic services unit closed a section of the Gardiner Expressway for investigation, but all lanes have since reopened.

As of now, no suspect information has been made available. However, investigators are on the lookout for a black Acura with no license plates, believed to have had three males inside at the time of the shooting.

The Gardiner Expressway was closed from Jameson to Spadina for approximately half an hour but has since reopened to the public.

Police are asking anyone with information to come forward and contact them or Crime Stoppers.
