A man who was found without vital signs early Monday morning in Markham has died of his injuries.
York Regional police were called out to the area of Old Kennedy Road and Steeles Avenue around 5:40 a.m.
Reports suggest the man, in his 50s, may have been involved in a carjacking and shot dead. His vehicle was also reported to have been torched, but that has not been confirmed by police. Constable Andy Pattenden has only said a weapon was involved.
More to come.
