Update: Man dies after being shot downtown

Police identify victim as Rala Federick

Toronto police have identified the male who was shot downtown overnight as 36-year-old Rala Federick of Toronto.

Federick was rushed to hospital with serious injuries. He died of his injuries around 5 a.m., police said. 

The shooting happened on George Street between Gerrard Street East and Dundas Street East around 2 a.m.

Federick was shot in the stomach, while another male was shot in the wrist, a Toronto EMS spokesperson told CP24.

The victim with the wrist wound was treated in hospital, but has since been released.

George Street has been shut down between Gerrard and Dundas streets as police investigate the fatal shooting.

Police are looking for one suspect who is described as a black male with a light complexion of about 20 to 30 years of age, standing about five-foot-ten with a heavy build.

    Toronto needs a real mayor, someone with strong leadership skills and the ability to build consensus between the police, politicians, and the community. Since Rob Ford was elected we've had almost daily shootings, stabbings, beatings...the buildings in town are covered with graffiti, the roads are crumbling, and many of the areas are stinking dirty...some get pressure washed every day.

    And all we hear about is rehab, drunken stupors, crack, hookers, pussy, his brother Doug playing defense saying that parents of autistic kids can go to hell and that the press is mounting a jihad against them.

    Clown time is over...we need leadership before our Toronto goes to hell and becomes a Detroit or New Orleans where you just don't go out alone or at night.

      @Mark7 The only Ford I support is the company that made my truck. That said, I don't see how this news story has anything to do with the mayor. Whats next are you going to blame him for the weather?

      @Tanya Everything is either Rob Ford's fault or, failing that, Mike Harris. Poverty? Ford's fault. Gridlock? Ford. The common cold? Harris. Rwandan genocide? Harris again. My neighbour's aunt in Fenelon Falls broke her hip last week? You better believe that's Ford's fault, it's probably because he's fat or something.

      @Mark7 No, we need a real chief of police who actually gets officers deployed ON FOOT to areas like Dundas and Jarvis, not the dud we have right now who has cops on bicycles pretending to do work while all they are doing is farting around, a police chief who doesn't make excuses for police brutality and the shooting of innocent civilians.

    Toronto needs to bring in Donald Trump so he can call Rob Ford into the board room and look him in the face and say "Your Fired".
