Several people have been shot outside a restaurant in Danforth and Logan Aves in Toronto, Canada.

Global News quoted a Toronto police source as saying nine people were shot, including a child.

The shooting was reported just after 10 p.m. local time.

Witnesses told the paper an armed man dressed black fired his weapon multiple times, with up to 20 gunshots reported by people in the area. Their condition was not immediately known.

Victims reportedly suffered "significant injuries".

There is a heavy police presence at the scene and a large swath of the area has been blocked off as emergency crews respond to the situation.

A local reporter, Jeremy Chohn, tweeted "victims are spread across many blocks".

Eight people have been transported to various hospitals - six to trauma hospitals, one to a pediatric trauma center and one to a local hospital, Toronto Paramedic Services told CNN partner CTV.

This is a developing story.
