  • Police said four victims with varying injuries were being taken to hospital via emergency runs

Three children were among a group of people shot at an outdoor birthday party for a one-year-old child in Toronto's Rexdale neighbourhood Saturday evening, police said.

"It was a birthday party, a children's birthday party", Skinner said.

Three children and a man were shot at a one-year-old's birthday party.

The three children who were shot were 11, 5 and 1 years old, and the injured adult was identified as a 23-year-old.

A one-year-old boy.

Police say they are looking for multiple suspects but have yet to release any descriptions, saying only they know the shooters arrived at the scene on foot and fled the area in a vehicle.

Earlier, paramedics said the individual children had life-threatening, serious and minor injuries, but it wasn't immediately clear which injuries were suffered by which child.

Police said four victims, with varying injuries, were being taken to hospital via emergency runs.
