David Miller's Dodge City

Oops, they did it again... the bullets are flyin' in Toronto the Good.

A man has died from his injuries after an east-end shootout that may have involved as many as six people.

Witnesses told police two groups of people opened fire on each other on the street near Birchmount Road and Sheppard Avenue at about 1:20 p.m. on Friday.
Latest reports are not identifying the victim... but say it was a 19 year-old male.

RELATED: Apparently, that code of silence thing...

Makes for a pretty good defence.
A teenager accused of gunning down Jason Huxtable stood stunned and speechless while the victim’s mother wept as a jury acquitted him yesterday of second-degree murder.

The now 17-year-old - who testified he was an innocent witness - wouldn’t identify the culprit who fatally shot the 18-year-old Huxtable outside a Jane St. and Sheppard Ave. W. townhouse complex on Aug. 30, 2005.

The teen testified that he feared reprisals against his friends and family so he refused to divulge the identities of Huxtable’s killers. The teen’s best friend and his father were shot in the months after Huxtable’s death, court heard.

UPDATE: I have to apologise here...

It was three murders... not one.
Toronto homicide detectives are investigating three murders that took place around the city within hours of each other Friday, each with outstanding suspects.

The most recent came with the stabbing death of a man found in an O'Connor Dr. apartment building around 10 p.m., Toronto police Staff-Sgt. Chuck Konkel said Saturday morning.

A 25-year-old man was found shot to death in an east-end underground parking garage around 8:15 p.m.

Miller will pin this one on Harper. On MDL he blamed the feds for potholed streets and wonky bridges. If only Miller had more money from the feds he could build more basketball courts to keep youths out of criminal courts.

Oh well, at least a couple of thugs are dead, for that we can be thankful.
