A man in his 40s was killed early Monday morning in Scarborough after being shot multiple times.
At 3:50 a.m., paramedics were dispatched to a stretch of Nugget Avenue east of McCowan Road for reports of a shooting.
They arrived to find a man in his 40s suffering from life-threatening injuries inside a structure.
He was transported to a trauma center at a hospital, where he was later pronounced dead.

Police appeared to cordon off a banquet hall off Nugget Avenue as part of the investigation.
It’s the city’s 79th murder of the year.
