In other "big city crime is down" news

A 23-year-old Toronto man is dead after he was gunned down in an alley behind a popular downtown bar early this morning.

The victim had been at The Brunswick House, at the corner of Bloor St. W. and Brunswick Ave. in the Annex, when he went to his car to get something around 1 a.m., a friend said.

There is no indication that the victim, whose friend said lives in the Scarlett Rd. and Eglinton Ave. W. area, knew his shooter, Gallant said.

UPDATE: Murder victim identified
He demanded the necklace; he got the necklace. Then he shot and killed the young man who had been wearing it.

This is what Toronto cops probing the death of 23-year-old Sebastian Herrera watched unfold on surveillance video of the Annex alley where Herrera met his fate early Saturday morning, Det. Stacy Gallant said yesterday.

"He was shot for no reason," Gallant said. "I would totally agree with that."

The gunman was black, about six feet tall, 180 pounds, and dressed in dark clothes, Gallant said.

The shooter should hang from the neck until dead.
