Police identify two men killed in Sunday shooting in Toronto

Toronto police have identified two men killed in a Sunday shooting as a 27-year-old man from Markham, Ont., and a 32-year-old from Richmond Hill, Ont. 

The force says four men were found with gunshot wounds after a shooting was reported just before 6 a.m. in the city's Kensington Market area.

Police say two men, identified as Anthony Dang and Zhi Tan, died at the scene while two others were taken to hospital. 

They say a 31-year-old from Markham who was injured has been released from hospital, while a 43-year-old man from British Columbia remains in a local trauma centre.

The force is asking anyone who may have seen Dang or Tan early on Sunday to contact police.

They say even the smallest amount of information could be vital to their probe.
