One person was rushed to the hospital after a reported admission to Etobicoke.

Local residents reported hearing shots in the Woodlot Crescent area on Sunday evening in Finch Avenue and Humber College Boulevard.

"Because this is a very student-heavy neighborhood, we assumed it was fireworks," said Nicole Colangelo, a resident of the countryside, who was at home when the recordings took place.

Toronto Paramedic Services said they were called to the area at 9:43 am. and found one man who suffers from penetrating trauma. He was rushed to the hospital in a life-threatening condition, paramedics said.

There is a heavy police presence in the area as Toronto police are investigating.

Area resident Caify Hunter said he was driving home in the area when he saw several people running. Hunter said he heard about seven or eight quick gunshots before he rolled up his window and called the police.

"I was very afraid to hear armed shots just in front of my house while I was driving," he said. "It was incredible."

He said he ran to his cellar apartment and waited for the police to arrive.

The police have so far provided no details about possible arrests or accusations of suspects.
