Man shot near Don Mills & Eglinton

His injuries are not life-threatening

A man believed to be in his 20s has been shot near Don Mills Rd and Eglinton Ave. 

Police say they were called to Vendome Place just after 1 a.m. Sunday. 

The victim was shot in the leg and taken to hospital with injuries that are not considered life-threatening. 

Police have not released any information on suspects. 

This is not the first shooting in the area. In July 2010, a 19-year-old man was shot and killed in a playground on nearby Grenoble Dr. In January 2011, shots rang out in the same playground area and an 18-year-old man was shot in the shoulder. In March 2012, an 18-year-old woman was shot in the back when someone opened fire on a car on Vendome Place.
