A man has died following a shooting on O’Keefe Lane near Yonge and Gould Streets, just outside Ryerson’s Sheldon & Tracy Levy Student Learning Centre (SLC).

According to Const. Edward Parks, sounds of gunshots were reported at the intersection at around 7:42 p.m. The victim had life-threatening injuries and was transported to a hospital where he succumbed to his injuries.

Parks could not confirm whether the victim was a Ryerson community member.

He also said he was unable to disclose information about a potential suspect due to the ongoing police investigation.

Ryerson has since re-issued a RyersonSafe alert, giving community members the “all clear.”

More to come.
