The death of a male cyclist in Little Portugal late Saturday afternoon is being investigated as a suspected homicide, Toronto police say.

The victim, believed to be in his 20s, was struck by an SUV around 5:30 p.m. in a laneway behind a school at Frankish and Sheridan avenues, near Dundas and Dufferin streets. The cyclist was unconscious, not breathing and witnesses were performing CPR on him when police arrived at the scene.

Investigators believe the victim may have been assaulted following what they characterized was an "intentional" crash. The details of that assault are unclear. Paramedics originally said the victim was shot, but police have not confirmed that information.
