Man dead after shooting inside restaurant in downtown Toronto

Man dead after shooting inside restaurant in downtown Toronto”

Witnesses told police they heard four to five shots fired, and that the shooting took place within the restaurant, which is located in Toronto's entertainment district.

The victim, real estate broker Simon Giannini, was taken to hospital and pronounced dead.

Brister said police were called to Michael's On Simcoe Restaurant, 100 Simcoe St., near Adelaide Street West and University Avenue, for a shooting at 8:53 p.m. on Saturday.

She said everyone got down underneath their tables and then the maître d' ordered everyone to stay down.

Dawson said police do not believe the incident is in any way connected to another shooting inside the restaurant nearly two years ago.

Simon Giannini was rushed to hospital in life-threatening condition Saturday night following a shooting at Michael's restaurant downtown. He has since died

One employee said she ran into the restaurant's lounge and tended to Giannini before first responders arrived. He said the victim was eating with another man when he was shot. Another woman told CP24 she helped apply pressure to the victim's wound.

Police are looking for one male suspect who fled the scene on foot. They have not released a detailed description.

The restaurant was the scene of a targeted shooting nearly two years ago when a man and a woman were shot by two masked men. Both survived, but suffered serious injuries. Shannon Dawson said the shooting appears to be a "targeted" attack.

No other injuries were reported. "I'm sure it was very frightening for the customers who were at the restaurant and that is why we think many of them may have fled very quickly and perhaps those people haven't had a chance to speak to us".
