      A man is dead after being shot numerous times in his car in what police are calling a ``brazen attack'' in downtown Toronto.

      Det. Sgt. Steve Ryan says the victim, identified as Shmar Parris, 25, of Toronto, was known to police and the overnight shooting is believed to be a targeted attack.

      He was also a rapper, known as Murda Marz, rapping about guns, women, partying, and high-end cars.

      Ryan says a light-coloured SUV was seen driving erratically away from the scene but there are no details on any suspects or how many may be involved.

      Police say Parris was pronounced dead in hospital Friday after being found slumped in the driver's seat of the car with multiple gunshot wounds near Carlton Street and Parliament Street.

      Officers went to the Mutual Street and Gould Street area at about 2:30 a.m., for reports of gunshots but while on the way they were called to a collision a few blocks away involving a car that had crashed into a pole.

      The victim was found in his bullet-riddled car at the collision scene.
