·1 min read

Toronto police are investigating seven shootings over the weekend, four of which were fatal.

Investigators say 28-year-old Kamal Daley was shot dead early Saturday morning, less than two hours before Donald Leroy (Smokey) Marson died of a gunshot wound.

A third man was shot and killed at about 3:30 p.m. Saturday in a plaza parking lot.

Police say a fourth man -- a taxi driver -- died on Sunday evening after reportedly being shot while behind the wheel.

Earlier Sunday, police say, a teen boy suffered serious injuries after being shot in a car.

In another Sunday-morning incident, a woman turned up to hospital with a gunshot wound.

And several hours after that, just before 8 a.m., a man was badly injured after being shot near a restaurant.

Police haven't said whether any of the shootings are connected.
