Here's a wakeup call...

...if everybody you know is getting toasted... maybe it is you...

Toronto’s latest homicide victim is the younger brother of the man fatally shot in the Eaton Centre last year, a homicide detective confirmed Friday, but so far no evidence has emerged to connect the two killings.

Nisan Nirmalendran, 21, died in hospital after he was shot late Thursday at the entrance to a public-housing seniors’ residence on Bleecker Street near Carlton and Sherbourne streets, just west of Cabbagetown.
Looks as though ol' Nisan wasn't exactly a model citizen...
Video footage from the scene shows that when the gunfire erupted at around 11:20 p.m., an elderly resident of the building was going inside. As a plate-glass door panel in the vestibule was blown out, Mr. Nirmalendran, who was known to police, appeared to have been using the woman as a shield as he swivelled, trying to dodge the gunman.
And for all you "crime is down" folks...
The homicide is Toronto’s 13th so far this year, and the sixth gun death. This time last year, the total stood at 10.
Have a nice weekend Toronto.

Not to worry, when Olivia supplants Mayor Ford nirvana will break-out.

In Toronto, about 12 people per year are killed by a stranger. There are 2.6 million people in the city, so your chances of getting killed by a stranger are about one in 220,000.
So, not very likely at all. SO, yes, we Torontonians will have a nice weekend! Of course, not nearly as exciting as say, downtown Belleville.

"anon says... your chances of getting killed by a stranger..."
