TORONTO:  Police say a Toronto man has died after being found with gunshot wounds in a residential neighbourhood in the city’s north end last week.

Officers say Isahaq Omar, 36, was sitting with another man in a parked SUV on the evening of Feb. 8.

They say Omar was thrown from the SUV and the other man drove away.

Police say they found Omar in life-threatening condition, suffering from gunshot wounds, when they arrived at the scene shortly after 11 p.m.

Omar was taken to hospital where he soon lapsed into a coma, police said. He died early Sunday afternoon, they said.

Omar has “recently been tied to” the Vancouver and Regina areas, police said.

Homicide investigators are now looking for the man who was in the SUV with Omar.
