A man in his 20s was killed in an early morning shooting Tuesday in Toronto's west end, police say.

Officers initially responded around 1:30 a.m. to the shooting in the area of Lansdowne Avenue and Bloor Street.

The man was taken to a local trauma centre, where he died a short time later, police said in a series of posts on X, formerly called Twitter.

Another man in his 20s walked into a hospital with non-life threatening injuries around the same time. It's not yet confirmed if the two incidents are related.

"We're trying to determine if the person is actually involved in the homicide we are investigating," said Toronto police Det. Mike McGinn.

If residents of the neighbourhood find "anything of concern" near their homes, or have surveillance camera footage, McGinn said it would help the investigation.

Road closures were in place in the area throughout the morning as police investigate the shooting.
