Man with bullet wounds found dead near Humber River Hospital: police

Police say they are investigating a homicide after a man in his 20s was found dead with multiple bullet wounds early Monday near the Humber River Hospital in North York.

A dark-coloured sedan pulled up and left the man near the hospital grounds shorty after 2 a.m., said Toronto Police Det. Mike Mcginn.

Officers were patrolling just before 2:30 a.m. when they noticed the man lying on a grassy area by a bus stop, said Insp. Stacey Davis with Toronto Police.

“He had several gunshot wounds to the chest,” said Davis.

The man had no vital signs, she said. He was pronounced dead on scene, near Woodward and Uphill avenues.

The man was found lying just outside the hospital grounds, police say. (Jeremy Cohn/CBC)

‘We did not get any radio calls’

“We did not get any radio calls, the officers just happened upon the male,” Davis said.

The homicide unit has taken over the investigation.

Police urged people to check their video footage and properties for potential information.

Anyone with information can call police at 416-808-7400 or anonymously contact Crime Stoppers.
