Toronto Police Service have confirmed a shooting at Trinity Bellwoods Park on the morning of Tuesday, Aug. 9

It happened sometime before 11:40 a.m., when police arrived on scene. Though not as busy as a Friday night, there were still a number of people in the park including children from day camps.

Reports on social media state police told people to leave the area immediately. Police presence was captured around the park with some officers from the mounted horse unit present. 

Media relations officer Sinderela Chung confirmed a man was located with non-life-threatening gunshot wounds. He was transported to a local hospital by medics. 

There is no victim or suspect description available said Chung, however police are appealing for witnesses in and around the park area. A tweet from police indicated the suspect was seen leaving the scene on a bicycle.

Some people on social media said the shooting occurred near the baseball diamond area but a concrete answer has yet to be released by police.

More details will be released when they come in, said Chung.
