Six men have been arrested in a downtown shooting that followed the Toronto Raptors’ NBA Finals win.

Toronto Police say that around 4:15 a.m. on June 14, while people were celebrating at Yonge Dundas Square, a 19-year-old man became involved in an altercation with another man just north on Yonge St. near Gould St.

Cops say the other man pulled out a gun and shot the 19-year-old — and kept shooting after the victim had fallen.

The gunman then fled with a group of friends but was stopped by police, who seized guns and cocaine.

Abdulrahman Abdullahi, 23, of Toronto, is charged with attempted murder as well as multiple firearms-related charges.

Kamal Hassan, 26, of Toronto, is also charged with attempted murder, firearms charges and fail to comply with recognizance.

Ilyas Riyaleh, 23, Zachary Cust, 21, and Nathaniel Campbell, 33, all of Toronto, face multiple firearms-related charges, while Jovane Watson, 20, of Toronto, and Cust face drug charges.
