Toronto's infamous "cloak of invisibility" shooters strike again...
A man has died of his injuries nearly two days after he was shot multiple times outside a Scarborough residence, Toronto police say.

The victim has not yet been identified by police. Investigators are still working to identify a suspect.

UPDATE: Meanwhile, over at "Not the CBC"...
Early Tuesday morning, Toronto police confirmed that the victim died in hospital Monday. He has since been identified as Lawrence Taylor Gannon.

The suspect is described as a man in his mid-20s, with dark brown skin. He has a thin build, stands five-foot-eleven and was clean shaven.
Toronto’s 20th homicide of 2019.
