A woman wails in the background above the animated voices of a small crowd that had gathered around the vehicle.

“Roll, roll, roll,” a male voice urges, an obvious encouragement to the driver of the vehicle to get a move on in taking the injured man to hospital.

There are no further details at this time.

The Leslie Land area has been the scene recently of a spike in gun violence.

Prior to Sunday’s shooting and within the past week, three male individuals were injured by gunfire.

Hours later one man, identified as Stevie Sharma, alias ‘Zoom Boy’, was shot dead.
