A man is dead, and two others are injured after a shooting in Scarborough on Saturday night.

Emergency crews were called to the area of Markham and Kingston Roads just after 9 p.m. for reports of shots fired.

Speaking to reporters, Insp. Jim Gotell said three victims who had been shot were located inside a restaurant in the area.

Police said a male victim who was shot in the chest was pronounced dead at the scene.

The two other victims, a man and a woman, were taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Gotell said it is too early to determine if the shooting was targeted.

Two people were seen fleeing the area, Gotell said. No suspect description has been released.
