Constable Sinderela Chung told Narcity that police were called to the popular downtown park at 11:39 a.m. on August 9.

When officers arrived at the scene, they located a man with gunshot wounds suffering "non-life-threatening injuries."

Toronto paramedics told Narcity they arrived at the scene at around 11:30 a.m. and transported the man to a trauma centre.

A description of the suspect has yet to be released, but police said the suspect fled the scene on a bicycle.

Police are still at the scene, and Chung believes that officers are continuing to speak with witnesses.

Nicole, who was playing tennis at Trinity Bellwoods Park at the time of the shooting, told Narcity she heard “two lound bangs” in the middle of her rally.

“The second sounded like something had been hit, like a stone hitting a plank,” she said.

A Trinity Bellwoods Park account posted an image to Instagram of police and an ambulance at the scene with the caption: "Sh*t getting real in the park. #shooting."

Another individual commented on a post on Twitter sharing a photo of a police car and an officer on horseback outside of the park.

TPS is asking anyone with information on the shooting to come forward and contact the police.

This is a developing story. Check back for more details.
