At least two people have been killed and a dozen others wounded, including a young girl, after a gunman opened fire in the Canadian city of Toronto before being dying after an exchange of gunfire with police.

An unidentified man opened fire late on Sunday in the neighbourhood known as Greektown.

"Other than the shooter, we have a young lady that is deceased," Toronto police chief Mark Saunders told reporters late on Sunday.

"We are looking at all possible m otives... and not closing any doors," he added.

On Monday, Ontario's police watchdog said that a second person had also died. No other details were given on the second victim.

It was not immediately clear whether the suspected shooter killed himself or died of injuries after being shot by police.

Reports of gunfire began at 10pm (02:00 GMT Monday), CityNews.com said.

Paramedics, firefighters and police converged on the scene of the shooting in Toronto's east end, which has many popular restaurants, cafes and shops. Witnesses said they heard 25 gunshots, the news website reported.

Police said the gunman had used a handgun.

Toronto is grappling with a sharp rise in gun violence this year.

Deaths from gun violence in the city jumped by 53 percent to 26 so far in 2018 from the same period last year, police data last week showed, with the number of shootings rising by 13 percent.

Toronto deployed about 200 police officers from July 20 in response to the recent spate of shootings, which city officials have blamed on gang violence.
