Double shooting shakes gun-weary Toronto
Two 25-year-old men killed downtown; carjacking suspected
By Timothy APPLEBY and Jamie KOMARNICKI with reports from Sarah BOESVELD and Matthew CAMPBELL, Page A1
Toronto -- It was just after midnight yesterday when Alan DUDECK's cellphone rang, bearing the worst tidings a parent could hear: His son, Oliver MARTIN, and his son's lifelong friend Dylan ELLIS had just been shot.
The two young men had been heading home from a friend's apartment after watching a basketball game, and the frantic call came from a close friend of Mr. MARTIN.
"He said, 'Get down to St. Mike's [hospital] right away,' Mr. DUDECK recounted.
Mr. MARTIN worked for a prestigious investment firm. Mr. ELLIS was a photographer. Both were 25, with university degrees. And both, it seemed, had a shining future. Instead, both perished in an apparently random hail of bullets, leaving their families in shock.
"Pretty rough, pretty rough," Mr. DUDECK said.
Even in a city where gun killings have become familiar - yesterday's shootings bring Toronto's homicide count for the year to 25 - the double slaying, perhaps the result of an abortive carjacking, was unusual.
As police struggled to reconstruct the events west of the city's entertainment district, Detective Sergeant Gary GIROUX of the homicide squad stressed that from all appearances, neither Mr. ELLIS nor Mr. MARTIN was involved in crime.
"Both young men were loved by their families, they have a great deal of support, and as you can imagine, both families are devastated," he said.
"These two victims were not at all known - I repeat, not at all known - to the Toronto police or any police agency in Canada." The only police record of either stems from when one of them lost his passport about five years ago, another homicide investigator said.
A 911 call came in at 12: 08 a.m. yesterday to the 14 Division police station.
Mr. ELLIS and Mr. MARTIN were found in the front seat of a Range Rover that belongs to Mr. ELLIS's stepfather, outside a friend's condo where they had been watching a basketball game on television. Both were wearing seat belts and the car's engine was running, police said.
Despite paramedics' efforts, both were pronounced dead on arrival at Saint Michael's Hospital.
In the back seat of the Range Rover was a female friend who survived the attack and who is the homicide squad's key witness.
"It may well be the shooter didn't see her and that's why she's alive," Mr. DUDECK said. "We don't know."
All three had been watching the Boston Celtics pull off a comeback win against the Los Angeles Lakers in the National Basketball Association playoffs.
For several hours, the car was parked outside the condo, and the three departed at around midnight. They briefly returned for what Det. Sgt. GIROUX described as "a very innocent reason&hellip they were expecting someone to come out for a very brief moment."
Instead, they were accosted by the gunman.
"I'd say the shooting took place within seconds," Det. Sgt. GIROUX said. "He may have only been targeting the males in the front seat, but they were certainly in my opinion targeted."
Multiple shots were fired - at least eight, judging by shell-casing markers on the street yesterday - killing the two young men and damaging the interior of the Range Rover.
After speaking to the traumatized young woman, Det. Sgt. GIROUX said the shootings may have been part of an abortive car jacking, and that - for reasons he did not divulge - the killer appeared familiar with the area.
"We're certainly alive to the fact that this was a very expensive, high-end vehicle and I'm looking at it as a marketable thing to steal."
Another police source suggested the violence could have erupted from something as simple as an exchange of angry words.
One witness report said a young black male in a white shirt was seen fleeing the crime scene on a bicycle. Another offered a similar description, but said the man sped away in a blue car.
Under scrutiny, meanwhile, was an array of closed-circuit video footage from buildings near the crime scene.
A friend of the victims who was at Thursday night's gathering said she and other attendees were traumatized by the shooting.
Police swiftly cordoned off the area with yellow tape, and yesterday afternoon, the Range Rover was still being examined by forensic experts.
The car was parked immediately outside 798 Richmond St. West, an upscale, five-year-old rental high-rise, surrounded by townhouses. The area comprises a mix of new money and old, a few blocks west of the downtown entertainment district.
Just metres north is a vibrant section of Queen Street West, and on all sides are older brick homes, some of Victorian vintage.
"There's a sense of community; my house has been broken into, but I do usually feel safe walking along the streets late at night," said long-time resident Maria BARABASH, who lives a block east of the crime scene on Richmond Street.
"But this is a little bit too close to home."
So too for the families of the victims.
About 30 people gathered on the lawn of Mr. ELLIS's parents' home in the upscale Rosedale neighbourhood. Some hugged, while others stood around or sat on the lawn in shock.
Tears in his eyes, a young man demanded that reporters respect the family's privacy and leave the street and its million-dollar homes and expensive cars.
Lauren WILKINS, a friend of Mr. MARTIN and Mr. ELLIS, said yesterday the two men were "just wonderful people."
A few blocks away at Mr. OLIVER's home, family members from the East Coast began filtering into the big, ivy-clad brick house, hugging and exchanging condolences.
Mr. MARTIN lived downtown in a house he shared with his sisters.
He graduated with a bachelor of commerce degree from Concordia University's John Molson School of Business. He joined Russell Investments Canada last year and quickly made his mark as a friendly young man poised to take the financial world by storm, said company president Irshaad AHMAD.
"He was the person walking around the office always making Friends. He just made a really tremendous impact."
Mr. MARTIN and Mr. ELLIS had known each other since they were in Grade 1 in Toronto's Brown Junior Public School.
From Toronto, the pair headed for Quebec - Mr. MARTIN attending Concordia University while Mr. ELLIS pursued his passion for photography at Dawson College.
Mr. ELLIS was a thoughtful photographer with an eye for detail, his former mentor said.
"His style was a bit more urban, a bit more shadowy," recalled Laurel Breidon, co-ordinator of the college's commercial photography program.
"Not the bright, clean, happy stuff - a little funky, had a little edge to it."
Mourners set up a candle-lit shrine last night outside the building where Mr. MARTIN and Mr. ELLIS were shot. About 20 bouquets of flowers had been laid against the wall and three candles illuminated a sign taped to the building that reads "May you rest in peace Dylan and Oliver."

Activist remembered as leader
By John BARBER, Page A16
Federal New Democratic Party Leader Jack Layton and Mayor David Miller took time yesterday to offer glowing eulogies for activist and politician Allan SPARROW, who died of cancer Wednesday in London, Ontario, at 63.
Mr. Layton praised Mr. SPARROW as "a good friend, mentor and leader" who "inspired a generation of reform-minded progressives with ahead-of-his-time thinking on environment issues."
To Mr. Miller, Mr. SPARROW was the unbidden angel who organized a successful grassroots movement to halt construction of a bridge to the island airport - the defining issue of the election that brought him to power in 2003.
"Allan SPARROW was a tireless crusader who believed passionately in everything he did," the mayor said, describing his career as "an inspiration to all those who believe in the potential of Toronto."
As a downtown alderman in the 1970s, Mr. SPARROW was a driving force of the reform council led by former mayor David Crombie. But just as often he was far ahead of the pack, championing gay rights and police accountability at a time when most considered the mere mention of such issues to be an act of political suicide.
Despite his popularity, Mr. SPARROW left politics in 1980 to let George HYSLOP, Toronto's first gay candidate for council, run in his place.
He returned to the business world as a consultant specializing in information technology, but threw himself into public life once again after he and his wife, Susan, moved to the Toronto Islands and found themselves living below the flight path of a massively expanded airport.
Having stopped the bridge but not the airport, the SPARROWs moved to Stratford, Ontario, last year.

Do not stand at my grave and weep I am not there, I do not sleep I am a thousand winds that blow I am the diamond glints on snow I am the sun on ripened grain I am the gentle autumn rain When you awaken In the morning's hush I am the swift uplifting rush Of quiet birds in circled flight I am the soft stars That shine at night Do not stand at my grave and cry I am not there, I did not die. - Mary Frye

BARCLAY, Ian Andrew (March 7, 1921-June 7, 2008)
It is with deep sadness that Ian's family announces his passing after a brief illness. He is survived by his loving wife Ann, beloved daughter Debbie (David) ROLLINS, his adored granddaughters Jennifer, Meaghan and Kelly of whom he was so proud, his sister Joan (John) DRUMMOND of Chelsea, Quebec and his brother-in-law Peter (Joan) HADRILL of Montreal. Ian also had many nieces, nephews and cousins who were an important part of his life.
Ian was born in Montreal to Jean (FLECK) and Mr. Justice Gregor BARCLAY and was educated at Selwyn House, Montreal and Ashbury College, Ottawa. In 1939 he started McGill and in 1941 he joined the Royal Canadian Navy. He was loaned to the Royal Navy as a combined Ops Commando and served in the North African and Sicily campaigns, as well as the Normandy invasion on D-Day.
After the war Ian returned to McGill where he completed his law degree and then obtained his MPA at Harvard.
After a year of practising law in Montreal Ian, Ann and Debbie came to Vancouver where he started a long career in the forest industry with Columbia Cellulose. In 1964 he joined British Columbia Forest Products where he stayed until retiring in 1984 as their Chief Executive Officer. Ian served on the Economic Council of Canada as well as Many boards including the United Way, Hudson's Bay Co., the Royal Bank of Canada and Northern Telecom.
After his family and business his other great passion was sports. One of his proudest achievements was being a member of the navy team that won the Grey Cup in 1944. His interest in football continued as he became president of the British Columbia Lions and the Western Football Conference.
Ian was a gentle, softly spoken man and was a mentor to many young people in their formative years.
Our family would like to thank Doctor Brad Fritz and the medical teams at V.G.H.'S Intensive Care Unit and Critical Care Unit for their extraordinary care.

BARCLAY, Alexander P.H.
Passed away peacefully on June 16, 2008 in Toronto at age 95. Born in Glasgow, Scotland in 1913, and emigrated in 1926 from Kirkcudbright, Scotland to Hamilton, Ontario. son of Jessie and Rev. William BARCLAY, D.D. (past Moderator of the Presbyterian Church of Canada). Also predeceased by his beloved wife Helen Eileen (née MacLAURIN,) daughter Susan Eileen, and sister Morna (Petrie). Survived by his son William Alexander (Davoud), Susan's life-partner Valerie, and his dear friend May MacLEOD.
He earned his B.A. in Chemistry and Physics at McMaster U. and his M.Sc. in Communications and Physics at Cornell U. His early research career as a design engineer focused on radio tube, radar, theatre audio, and broadcast transmitters with Canadian Westinghouse, Northern Electric, Research Enterprises, and Rogers Radio Tubes. This was followed by a distinguished 24-year career with Philips Electronic Industries (1947-1971) culminating as General Manager of the Professional Equipment Division, and by later terms as General Manager with Ryerson Applied Research, and as Manager Electrical Engineering for Canada Post in Ottawa. All of these were significant professional achievements in his time, of which he was quietly proud.
Golf was his outside passion throughout his life, and he was exceptionally talented at it. He played until his knees finally quit on him, not that long ago.
All who knew Dad knew him as an uncommonly gentle, patient and modest soul: caring and kind with Friends and colleagues. He remained a gentleman and a gentle man to the end; everyone looked up to him. Special thanks to his many recent Friends and the dedicated staff at St. Hilda's Towers, Toronto, for whom he cared affectionately. Particular condolence and gratitude to his close friend May Macleod, who brought him so much infectious happiness in his later years. Family and close Friends will gather informally.
