Man killed during gunfight: Police
But uncertain if he was a shooter
Incident has 'some gang connection'
By Tracy HUFFMAN, Crime Reporter
Homicide detectives investigating a fatal shooting outside a North York apartment building believe the victim was struck during a gun battle, but they are unsure if he was a shooter.
Jermaine Lincoln BROWN, 22, was not armed when emergency crews arrived Monday night on Grandravine Dr. to find him suffering from multiple gunshot wounds.
While police continue to comb through evidence and interview witnesses, Det. Sgt. Randy CARTER, the lead homicide officer on the case, said the shooting has "some gang connection to it."
"I haven't been able to determine… fully yet whether or not he was himself shooting or whether or not he was just there," CARTER said.
Gunshots erupted in the west parking lot and moved to the front of the building where BROWN, who was studying culinary arts at Humber College, was found on the ground.
"I've received tremendous help from the community and I need that to continue," CARTER said. In particular, police need help finding a silver or green sport utility vehicle similar to a GMC Yukon or Envoy that fled the scene, near Jane St. and Sheppard Ave. W. One suspect with a firearm got in the front passenger seat after the shooting, he said.
"I'm still trying to piece together how many people were there, who was at what location when the shots were being fired back and forth."
One firearm was recovered at the scene and is undergoing ballistics testing.
BROWN, from Brampton, had been staying at the apartment building since December. He had contact with police in the past, most recently in 2005, when he was charged with sexual assault. The case was still before the courts when he became the city's 15th homicide victim.
On Tuesday, BROWN's parents, Linda and Frank BROWN, said in an interview they were upset that their requests to view their son's body prior to an autopsy were refused. They said someone who falsely said she was BROWN's sister, and an ex-girlfriend, identified the body.
Toronto police spokesman Mark PUGASH said protocol dictates that once a body has been identified, it cannot be viewed again until an autopsy is done to prevent evidence tampering.
CARTER said he apologizes to the family for upsetting them.
"I had enough information to believe that they were related to the deceased and that they could identify the person."
