Toronto Police have released video from a brazen shooting last month that left one person wounded in downtown Toronto.

On Dec. 12 at 2 a.m., police say two men walking westbound on Dundas St. E. approached four people standing near Yonge and Dundas Sts.

The two men attempted to rob the group and a struggle ensued. One of the two suspects fired a gun, hitting a victim in the chest.

The instigators then ran eastbound on Dundas.

Const. Edward Parks said Tuesday that the injuries sustained by the shooting victim were not life threatening.

“The victims were complete strangers to the suspects and had had no prior interaction,” he said. “There was a brief verbal exchange and then an altercation ensued.”

In addition to the video from the shooting, clear images of both suspects were captured at a nearby gas station convenience store just prior to the attempted mugging.
