Nuit Blanche gets a little Rouge

TORONTO - A man was shot near Trinity-Bellwoods Park overnight, Toronto Police said Sunday.

A 911 call was made around 3 a.m. and when police arrived they found a man in his mid-20s suffering from gunshot wounds.

He was rushed to hospital where he was pronounced dead.

"There is something fishy about this story. I distinctly remember David Miller declaring Toronto a 'gun free' zone."

UPDATE: Latest victim identified
"Jefflin Beals, 25, of Nova Scotia, found was lying between two homes on Crawford St., north of Queen St. W., around 4 a.m."

UPDATE2: CBC gets their investigation on
Jefflin Beals of Dartmouth, N.S., was described as a 23-year-old with a checkered past — a former all-star basketball player at Dartmouth High School who also had three convictions for drug possession, two for breaching release conditions and one for causing a disturbance by fighting.

It is unclear if both Beals are one and the same.
Hmmm... seems pretty clear to the local Halifax paper...
In May of 2009, he was charged with numerous weapons offences, fleeing from police, impaired driving, dangerous driving and refusing the breathalyzer. He was allegedly driving a car that fled from police at Windmill Road and Elmwood Drive and police found a Hi-Point CF-380 handgun in the vehicle.

UPDATE3: Only a matter of time...
-- TORONTO -- Toronto Police have made an arrest in last month’s fatal shooting of a Nova Scotia man near Trinity Bellwoods Park.

Darnell St. Clair Wright, 32, of Toronto, was arrested without incident Thursday at 8:45 p.m., police said in a news release Friday.

LAST WORD: Airbrushing the politburo...

...it's what the CBC does best...
cleancut young manProfessional journalism... it's a sacred calling...
"He was very smart," (cousin) Gary Beals said. "He graduated from high school."
Yeah, Gary... he's a regular Stephen Hawking. And, what's that... he knows ASL too?

and so respectfulWhat else is the CBC not telling us?
