A shooting in north-end Toronto has left two men dead and two others in hospital with life-threatening injuries.

Toronto police say the four men, all reportedly in their 20s, were found in a car just after 12:30 a.m. (at West Dean Park and Rabbit Lane).

Two of the men were pronounced dead at the scene and the two others were taken to Sunnybrook Hospital.

Television video shows the car had partially rolled onto a lawn outside a low-rise apartment building and a woman appearing to slump to the sidewalk as she arrived at the scene.

No names have been released, nor have police released any information about a potential suspect or suspects.
