A 20-year-old man is dead after being shot outside an apartment building in north-end Toronto.

Peter Bowen, 20, of Toronto, was shot multiple times in the chest just after 7 p.m. in the driveway of an apartment building at 345 Driftwood Ave. He was taken to Sunnybrook hospital where he died.

The motive isn't clear but reports say there was a dispute in the building's lobby before the argument moved out into the street.

Police say two suspects were seen fleeing the scene and are described as

  1. Black, 19-20, 5'7" and 130 lbs. He was last seen wearing a black baseball cap with the letter D, blue bandana with a teardrop pattern, black hooded winter jacket, black or gun-metal shiny jeans with greyish threading and black Timberland shoes.
  2. Black, 22-23, 6', 170 lbs., with a medium build. He was last seen wearing the same clothing as Suspect 1.

Officers from two forensic identification teams were on site overnight as homicide investigators scoured the area for a weapon and further clues.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call 31 Division at 416-808-3100 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 416-222-TIPS (8477).

The homicide is Toronto's eighth of the year.
