Shootings 'spike' as 3 slain
Police downplay violence as third victim shot to death
Man gunned down through closed door of his apartment
By Sikander Z. HASHMI and Bob MITCHELL, Staff Reporters
Three fatal shootings in 12 hours have jolted the city and left a neighbourhood in fear, but police are downplaying the most recent rash of violence.
"When a spike like that happens in the year, we have to remember that this stuff does level out over the average year," Toronto police Staff Insp. Jeff McGUIRE told a news conference yesterday.
Besides the two fatal shootings Saturday, a man was shot dead yesterday at Yonge-Dundas Square at Yonge and Dundas Sts.
The first shooting death, the city's 36th homicide of the year, occurred Saturday afternoon on Flemington Rd., near Lawrence Ave. and Allen Rd., in an area that saw two shootings last week. Police do not believe the incidents are related.
Leroy WHITTAKER, 46, was gunned down as he came to answer the door at his Lawrence Heights apartment. A 10-year-old boy inside the apartment, whose relationship to the victim police wouldn't disclose, called 911. Police say the shots were fired through the closed door and do not know if WHITTAKER was the intended victim.
"The aggravating factor obviously in this case is first of all the indiscriminate use of a firearm, firing through the door of the apartment when there was really no way to know who was on the other side," said McGUIRE.
Police are looking for two men between the ages of 25 and 30. One is tall with a thin build and was wearing a white do-rag on his head. The other is shorter than the first suspect and has a stocky build.
"I can't believe someone would go kill that poor innocent man," said a former neighbour. "He's so innocent. That man give trouble to no one."
Yesterday, police tape blocked off an area marked by a large dried bloodstain in front of the victim's apartment as two officers kept watch. Drops of dried blood marked the stairs leading to the floor.
Fearful neighbours barely raised their voices as they spoke about what happened.
A nearby neighbour, who also didn't want to be identified, trembled as she recounted Saturday's events. She had just returned from shopping and had noticed two men standing outside the victim's door. A few minutes later, shots rang out, followed by sirens.
There is no way she can continue to live in the area, she said.
"I'm outta here," said the 46-year-old. "I don't care how, (even) if I have to go to a shelter. I'm not living here."
Candice HEWSTON, 21, a mother of three young children who lives four doors away from the crime scene, was scared and said she had been looking to move before Saturday's incident due to violence in the past.
Over on Dorney Court, the scene of the two shootings last week, there was as much frustration as fear.
"It's just ridiculous," said a mother of three who refused to be identified. "Nobody feels safe around here any more.
"I don't care about myself, but my kids, they have to go through that, you know. It's traumatizing for them."
In the second homicide of the weekend, a 26-year-old man from Sri Lanka, gunned down late Saturday night in a Scarborough parking lot, may have been shot moments after leaving a bank machine.
Police discovered the body of Umathevan THIYAGARAJAH when they arrived at the scene at the rear of a professional building at the northeast corner of Warden and Finch Aves.
It's too early to comment on what may have led to THIYAGARAJAH's slaying, said McGUIRE. " There was a group of people around and something may have happened."
McGUIRE said police received a call about 11: 50 p.m. on Saturday that gunshots had been heard at the location, which is directly across from Bridlewood Mall.
"In the parking lot they found the victim lying on the ground, obviously badly injured and there were four or five people standing around at the time who have all been interviewed," McGUIRE said.
Police said THIYAGARAJAH wasn't known to them and that he lived in Scarborough.
McGUIRE said he was found at the base of a light standard in the well-lit parking lot.
"It's an area known for people to congregate in the evenings, hanging around," McGUIRE said. "In particular it's our understanding there were a number of people standing at the bus stop at Warden and Finch.... We expect they would have been in position to see or hear something which may add to the investigation, and we would ask that they also come forward."
Yellow police tape cordoned off the entire strip mall yesterday, including a large parking lot at the rear of the four-storey professional building at 3420 Finch Ave. E., which houses many medical and dental offices.
More than a dozen evidence markers had been placed in an area of the parking lot immediately in front of the entrance to several automated teller machines at a Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce bank as forensic investigators meticulously examined the parking lot for clues.
Police said they were also checking to see if any of the businesses in the area had video surveillance that may have captured the shooting.
