Toronto's first murder of 2009

The victim, whose friend last night said was 36, died after several shots were fired at him in the parking lot of a two-storey strip plaza on Milvan Dr., north of Finch Ave., shortly after 3 a.m.

Only willing to identify him as Johnnie, his friend of two months said he lived in Mississauga and was an auto mechanic. His family, who she said live in Iraq, “don’t know this has happened.

A friend of the victim suffered minor injuries after being hit with a gun, following an argument in which the leader of the suspect group insulted Johnnie with a homosexual slur, a witness said.

Grinton described the three men wanted in the shooting as black of West Indian descent, South Asian of West Indian descent and Asian. He said surveillance cameras were being checked to determine if the shooting was filmed.
And it's not the first time this particular venue has been in the news...
A widowed Brampton mother of four was shot dead at a nightclub which was at the same mall in April 2005. Livvette Olivea Miller, 26, also known as Livvette Moore, was killed in the Prestige Palace club while six others were wounded in an apparent gang gun battle.

"Toronto police maintain a web page that shows year-to-date shootings. As of Dec. 15, there have been 236 shooting incidents in the city, an increase of 18 percent over 2007. The number of victims is up to 336, about a 42 percent increase over 2007."
Gotta get cracking to beat last year.

Trust me, I ain't CCnonymous, just somebody who finds you painfully stupid and enjoys telling you so.

and you're just a big poopyhead.

hey, you're right, nonny... that's incredibly satisfying.

you, my funny little friend, with your silly little one-line brainfarts... are truly a genius among men.

p.s. - please let us know where to find your "letters to the editors"... you know... berating the various media outlets for obsessing about this type of thing.

Neo, you appear to have hit a leftard nerve.

How dare you subconciously point out that Tranna is a haven for gangs, Miller is an idiot, the farmer Bob registry is a waste of money, Liberal Leftards are the cause of it.

The worst thing of all, you use the media as attachments to further this blasphamy.

What a noodlehead anony-mouse is, haven't these people nothing better to do than to troll the blogsphere and complain?

Oh yah, it's Sunday and I'm pretty sure they have nothing on TV

Oops sorry Nero, I am trying to learn HTML tags ...

As far as I am concerned the more articles about shootings by criminals with illegal guns, the better Comrade Millers aim will be ...
... then again we are talking about Toronto's 'silly socialist hall'

perhaps cc-nonymous, or deputy dawg, or any one of the other che-lickers out there will be helpful enough to post a list of all the topics... we're simply not allowed to talk about.

"liberal supporter aka cc-nonymous says... That's easy. Here is a partial list:"

sorry nonny... you crossed a line a long time ago... and now you have to bear the consequences.

what you're forgetting is that you show up here solely at my pleasure. if you don't like that... feel free to go bother someone else.

and don't try to confuse your absolutely unacceptable, repugnant behaviour... with freedom of speech. you pee on the floor... you get chucked out the door.
