An early morning shooting at an east end sports bar early Monday has claimed the life of a 38-year-old man and left 10 children fatherless.

Among the crowd were the six women who have fathered children with the deceased man, whom they identified as Clifenton Ford.

Homicide detectives have interviewed the handful of patrons who were in the bar, which is located in a small strip plaza just east of Midland Ave.

But they are anxious to speak with the 30 or so other witnesses who fled after the shooting.

I don't get it... it sure sounds like it's already here...
“One of the other baby mamas called me this morning at 7 a.m.,” said Andrea Cuff, 36, mother of Ford’s 10-year-old son. “I have to raise my son by myself now.”

Ayisha Spence, 28, is the mother of two of Ford’s children, an 8-year-old girl and 7-year-old boy. She said her fiancĂ© worked as a janitor at a fitness facility and was “finally settling his life.”

She stood and spoke to reporters with Lesley Parker, mother of four of Ford’s children, ages 16, 14, 12 and 8. Parker said she last saw Ford at 11 p.m. Sunday. “He just told me he was gonna go out.”

Clifenton Ford died around 2:25 a.m. at G’s Chill & Grill, on Eglinton Ave. E. near Midland Ave.

LAST WORD: Oops, there goes another...
crime is down
A man in his 20s is fighting for his life after gunshots rang out in the city’s east end for the second time in less than 18 hours.

The gunfire erupted around 7:45 p.m. Monday in the Kingston Rd.-Queen St. E. area, leaving one man wounded and prompting the Toronto Police Emergency Task Force to respond to the scene.

EMS officials say the victim was shot in his face and “it’s definitely life-threatening.”
