Two injured by gunfire following a traffic dispute.

Police have reported that the shooting that left two individuals with serious injuries in downtown Toronto this morning may have been triggered by a road rage incident.

The incident took place on Charles Street West, just south of Yonge and Bloor streets, at 6:06 a.m.

Speaking to reporters at the scene, Police Inspector Michelle Olszevski said a group of people was standing outside 7 Charles Street West when a vehicle stopped and a suspect or suspects opened fire.

Police initially stated that there were "multiple victims" following the shooting. In an update, the police mentioned that two victims, a man and a woman in their twenties, were transported to a local trauma center with serious injuries.

No description of the suspect or suspects is currently available, according to Olszevski.

A witness to the incident said they heard a group of people arguing followed by up to 13 gunshots. They then saw members of the group running to save their lives.
