Two shootings, two dead in East Toronto

Homicides occurred within hours of each other

Two homicides occurred close together in both location and time on Monday.

An 18-year-old man was shot and killed near Gerrard Street East and Sumach Street just hours after a 39-year-old man was shot and killed at George and Adelaide streets.

The 18-year-old victim was identified as Ali Rizeig of Toronto.

Police said Rizeig was shot at about 9:23 p.m. and had life-threatening injuries when they arrived at the scene. He was rushed to hospital but died shortly after.

Police do not have any suspects in the case

The other victim has been identified as Anastasios Leventis of St. Laurent, Quebec.

Leventis was shot at about 2:46 p.m. and was dead before officials could get him to hospital, police say.

Police are looking for a dark SUV that witnesses tell them drove away from the scene after the shooter got in the vehicle.

Police say they are still unsure whether the two incidents are related.
