Two people have been killed and 12 other people injured in a shooting in the Canadian city of Toronto.

The shooting happened on Danforth Avenue in the city's busy Greektown area.

Police, who responded to reports of a shooting at around 10pm local time on Sunday, say the suspected shooter - a 29-year-old man - has also died.

Officials confirmed that the suspect was found dead following an 'exchange of gunfire'.

A woman was killed in the attack, and Ontario's Special Investigations Unit confirmed on Monday morning that a second victim had also died.

A young girl is among those shot, and police last night said she was in a critical condition.

The victims are said to have been shot with a handgun.

Local Mayor John Tory said: "People should not reach any conclusions, because police themselves have not drawn any conclusions as to exactly what happened here and why."
