He says officers found a man with numerous gunshot wounds inside the apartment, who was pronounced dead some time after police arrival.

He has been identified as 36-year-old Lingathasan Suntharamoorthy.

Reid says police are looking for three men, all believed to be between the ages of 17 and 25, in connection with the death.

Anyone with information is being asked to come forward.
