Man killed in 'brazen' shooting at Langley McDonald's

Man killed in 'brazen' shooting at Langley McDonald's Police say a deadly shooting around dinnertime in a McDonald’s restaurant in Langley was “brazen” and a threat to public safety. The RCMP were called Tuesday evening to multiple reports of a shooting at the restaurant in the Aldergrove suburb. Officers found a man in his 30s with gunshot wounds outside the restaurant where he was pronounced dead. About 30 minutes later, police in the neighbouring city of Abbotsford say they received a report of a black SUV on fire that investigators believe is connected to the shooting death.

Eight people were killed in various locations; suspect gives chilling confession on video saying he kept going until he "ran out of bullets.".

A 17-year-old teen is dead and multiple other people were injured after a shooting outside a residential building near Morning Star and Goreway Drives at approximately 6:30 p.m. on Saturday evening.

It was a pleasant late-summer evening in Malton, as families, including young children, gathered around an ice cream truck that had pulled up near a parkette in a lowrise rental housing complex on Darcel Ave.

But the tranquil scene was suddenly shattered at around 6:15 p.m. Saturday when a group of seven shooters, dressed in dark clothing, their faces covered by balaclavas, opened fire. A 17-year-old, who friends have identified as Jonathan Davis and who police are calling an innocent bystander, is dead. Five others, including a 13-year-old girl, who one neighbour said was a Syrian refugee recently arrived in Canada, were injured.

Teen killed, 5 others wounded in Mississauga shooting

Teen killed, 5 others wounded in Mississauga shooting A 17-year-old boy is dead and five others were wounded after gunfire erupted in Mississauga on Saturday evening, Peel Regional Police say. Speaking to reporters from the scene Saturday night, Chief Chris Cord said among those injured are a 13 year-old, a 16 year-old, two 17 year-olds and a woman in her 50s. One of those victims is in life-threatening condition, while the others are being treated for non-life-threatening injuries, Cord said. Police are now searching for what they believe are "multiple individuals armed with semi-automatic weapons," who fled from the area after the shooting.

Peel Regional Police Chief Chris McCord says the shooting in Mississauga that killed a 17-year-old boy and injured five others on Saturday was targeted. McCord said the “ambush-type” attack was targeted at a group filming a rap video in the area and some of the victims were innocent bystanders.

The shooting occurred in a parkette behind an apartment complex near Morning Star and Goreway Speaking with reporters alongside McCord, Mississauga Mayor Bonnie Crombie described the Police tape is shown at the scene of a shooting investigation at an apartment complex near Morning

The motive for the gunfire?

Police says bad blood was sparked by a rap video recorded earlier in the week at the low-income complex, located in the Hwy. 427 and Morning Star Dr. area.

The intended target of the shooters, police say, was a group of men who had recorded the first video and who were preparing to make another when the bullets started flying.

The children, young people and adults all dove for cover. The shooters, armed with semi-automatic handguns according to police, had arrived on foot and fled the scene on foot, leaving more than 100 shell casings behind.

The men making the video also fled.

No arrests have been made.

Several vehicles parked in the complex were also hit by bullets.

Davis was found suffering from gunshot wounds. The Grade 12 student at Lincoln M. Alexander Secondary School was pronounced dead at the scene.

Teen killed in 'ambush' shooting an innocent victim, says police chief

Teen killed in 'ambush' shooting an innocent victim, says police chief MISSISSAUGA, Ont. — A teen killed in an "ambush-type" shooting Saturday night west of Toronto is believed to be a bystander and police are searching for at least seven suspects who fired semi-automatic handguns in Mississauga, Ont., said the chief of Peel Regional Police. "The attackers had complete disregard for public safety within our community," Chris McCord told reporters on Sunday. A 17-year-old old boy died at the scene and five other people — a 13-year-old girl, a 16-year-old boy, two 17-year boys and a woman in her 50s — were injured. One has been released from hospital and the adult woman was upgraded to stable from critical condition, said McCord.

Peel Region police homicide detectives are investigating the incident, the 18th homicide in Peel this year.

One resident, who would only give her first name “Stef” because she is left feeling “paranoid” after the shooting, was out walking her dog Sunday as police combed the parkette looking for casings and other clues.

The long-time resident said that aside from the odd drug bust, she considers the complex safe.

“We’ve never had anything to this scale,” she said.

The shooters had approached the complex covertly. They opened fire “indiscriminately and had “no regard for any of the innocent people gathered here,” Peel Region police interim Chief Chris McCord told reporters during a media briefing at the scene Sunday.

“We have never witnessed anything like this in Mississauga or this neighbourhood,” McCord said. “This brazen act of violence will not be tolerated.”

He said information in the first rap video “challenging other people in the community” is what upset the shooters. He said police hadn’t established if any of those who were recording the video were struck by gunfire.

“Copious” amounts of video captured the incident and police have obtained it and are viewing it, McCord added.

Beside him stood a visibly shaken Mississauga Mayor Bonnie Crombie, who said she was deeply “saddened and shocked” by the incident and broken-hearted for the family of the young man who was killed.

“My heart goes out to the family of the innocent victim,” the mayor said noting the young man was a student at a local school.

Crombie pleaded for the reopening of a nearby community policing unit, shuttered a few years ago by Peel’s former chief and police services board due to funding considerations, and called for youth programming that provides an alternative to a life of crime.

The mayor said the weekend shooting also demonstrates how important it is that Mississauga and Peel Region get a fair share of money and resources through Ottawa’s initiative targeting guns and gangs.

Last month, Ontario announced plans to bolster teams of prosecutors who’ll focus on going after gangs in court along with people charged with gun crimes. Police in Ontario will be also getting additional money and banding together to go after street gangs.

That’s what Ontario intends to do with its $54 million portion of $214 million in five-year funding from Ottawa announced in 2017 to fight the war on gangs.

“The province has provided funding for guns and gangs and related initiatives to Toronto, but we know this type of activity has no boundaries. I think it’s time we look at extending similar sorts of funding to other jurisdictions, particularly Peel,” Crombie said.

None of the other victims, including the 13-year-old girl, a 50-year-old woman and three males, one aged 16 and two 17-year-olds were in life-threatening condition as of Sunday afternoon and one of the victims had even been released from hospital, police said.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau promised to speak to Crombie about the tragedy Sunday.

Trudeau, as well as the leaders of the Conservatives and NDP offered their condolences to the families of the victims, but all three parties stopped short of making any new promises to address gun violence.

Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer and the NDP’s Jagmeet Singh went little farther. Both said the root causes of the violence need to be addressed, but differed in their views on what those are as they repeated their existing commitments.

“What we do know about some of these shootings that have gone on over the past few months is that they are related to gang activity and that’s why we need better laws to deal with things like bail conditions that known gang members receive,” Scheer told reporters after a campaign announcement in Surrey, B.C.

“That’s why we need greater co-operation with police agencies, that’s exactly what my plan for a safer Canada talks about.”

That plan was mostly released last year. It will form part of the Conservatives’ broader election platform. Among other things, it promises that known gang members won’t be allowed to post bail if arrested (a measure certain to be challenged on constitutional grounds) and bring in longer sentences for gang-related offences.

Singh, campaigning in Quebec, reiterated his party’s promise to allow municipalities to ban handguns, if that’s what they think is the best way to stem violence.

But he said that’s only one step.

“When people don’t have hope they can fall on the wrong path,” Singh said after an event in Sherbrooke. “And we want to make sure we have all the programs in place — affordable housing, good health care, opportunities for work so that young people can find a positive way forward and not end up in a vicious cycle of violence.”
