Emergency crews were called to an apartment building on Wingarden Court, just west of Neilson Road and south of Finch Avenue East, at around 6:15 p.m. with reports of a shooting.
Police initially reported the victim sustained serious, but non-life-threatening injuries. However, the service later said the man’s condition deteriorated.
A Toronto Paramedics spokesperson told Global News the victim was being rushed to hospital with critical injuries where police later said he died.
He was later identified as Clinton Phil Williams.
The homicide squad was called in to take over the investigation.
Williams’s death marks Toronto’s 77th homicide of 2019.
