Police name slain teen
Fatally shot on busy sidewalk
Police still looking into 66th homicide
By John GODDARD, Staff Reporter
A teenager gunned down in broad daylight on a busy strip of Eglinton Ave. W. was identified yesterday as Jamal Michael HEMMINGS.
He was 17, unemployed, the father of a 2-month-old son and "known to police," Det. Sgt. Mario DI TOMMASO told reporters without giving specifics. He gave the dead teen's address only as "somewhere in downtown Toronto."
Police are still piecing together what happened but said HEMMINGS was shot once just before 4 p.m. Wednesday in or near a parking lot on the south side of Eglinton Ave., just west of Oakwood Ave.
He fled east on foot, DI TOMMASO said, but collapsed a couple of blocks away at Marlee Ave., a short block north of Eglinton at Livingston Rd. Police called to the scene found HEMMINGS unconscious. He was pronounced dead in hospital.
HEMMINGS is the city's 46th shooting death this year and 66th homicide.
"He was with a friend," the detective said of the victim.
"We've spoken to the friend and are trying to corroborate his story."
What that story was, police wouldn't say -- only that investigators are trying to trace HEMMINGS's movements of Tuesday and Wednesday. Police would not speculate on a motive in the killing.
An old red or burgundy four-door vehicle, possibly a Pontiac, was seen speeding eastbound from the parking lot after the shooting and running a red light, DI TOMMASO also said.

Hallie was born in New York City on December 4th, 1913, the daughter of Leslie Jay TOMPKINS, a noted law professor, and Jean Edgar BURNET, a well-known suffragette. Hallie graduated from The Brearley and from Vassar, where she was the editor of the college newspaper. After graduation she went to Paris as a freelance journalist for the New York Herald Tribune. There she met John Kempster (J.K.) THOMAS, a brilliant philosophy student who later became a respected editor and psychologist.

Saturday nights were spent in rowdy stimulating conversation with her long time Friends Morley and Loretto CALLAGHAN, Mary Lowrey ROSS, film Critic for Saturday Night magazine, and Eustace ROSS, the symbolist poet. When Hallie's husband died, she took up a new career, Real Estate, at the age of 55.

Always game for new challenges, in her latter years she became a prize-winning duplicate bridge player. She is survived by four children: Mary FARRAR (Edward) and John THOMAS (Liz WHELPDALE) of Kingston, Ontario, and Jeannie Thomas PARKER and Christie Thomas POTTS of Toronto.

MacLELLAN, Charles (1919-2005)
Charles passed away March 16, 2005. Born Charles MacLELLAN August 28, 1919 to John Sandy and Catherine (MacINNIS) at Deepdale, Inverness County. The "kings" (as these MacLELLANs were known) were very musical. Each of the eleven children were talented musicians. Charlie was the seventh son and second youngest. He taught himself to read music at a young age and was a great sight reader and talented violinist. He spoke Gaelic fluently and always promoted Scottish tradition and hospitality. Charlie married Catharine TOMPKINS (deceased January 20, 2005) and they celebrated 60 years together. He served in the forces during the Second World War. He worked in the Inverness coal mines until their first daughter Myrna was born. They moved to Ontario where he worked in different mining companies. He settled in Toronto and joined the Iron Workers Local 727 and was honoured with a 50 years member award. Charlie continued his musical legacy in the city. He entertained Cape Bretoners at his dances for many years. An accomplished violinist, Charlie would entertain guests after the dance with Kaye accompanying him on the piano. Musicians would come to exchange tunes, laughs and stories. Charlie's generosity, talent, and sense of humour will always be remembered. The rhythm in his heart was Celtic and he instilled this in his children bringing them to Cape Breton each summer. They learnt to appreciate the Land, the heritage, the music and the cousins. His children Myrna, Jack, Rita, and Chuck thank him for that. Moran Taing! Thank You! Cremation has taken place and a Memorial Mass will be held at St. Patrick Church, McColl Street, Toronto. Reverend Joseph RUTA will celebrate the Mass at 10 a.m. Monday, March 21, 2005. A Mass of Thanksgiving celebrating the life of Charlie will be held at Stella Maris Church, Inverness, August 6.
