Crime for Today: January 23

Police Called To East End Over Possible Abduction (www.citynews.ca)

Police are investigating a possible abduction after they received calls from residents in an east end neighbourhood.

Heavily armed officers descended on Morse St. in the Eastern and Carlaw area after what was initially reported to be a shooting. When they arrived they found a man in distress who claimed he'd been abducted from the Jane and Wilson neighbourhood of North York. He had been handcuffed and there was duct tape around his head.

Authorities apparently found a gun at the scene but there was no indication it had been fired at any point.

The man, though obviously upset, was able to walk to the ambulance, which suggests his injuries aren't life threatening. He's been taken to hospital for treatment.
There's no word on suspects.
It's unclear if the incident is related to a shooting that occurred Tuesday night near Jane and Wilson

A young man was dumped on the street and left for dead after being shot in the neck, Toronto police say.

Police said he was without identification when he was found.

Authorities were alerted to the situation from a 911 caller who claimed the 22-year-old man was hit by a car on Jane Street, near Wilson Avenue.

When paramedics arrived at the scene at around 8:30 p.m. they found him unconscious, bleeding from the neck with bullet wounds.

He was resuscitated and rushed to Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre but he is not expected to live, police told the Toronto Star.
