Three deaths probably gang related
By The Canadian Press, Mon., July 21, 2008
Toronto -- The shooting deaths of three men found sitting in a sport utility vehicle in the city's west end was probably gang related, police said yesterday.
And it's likely the victims were gunned down somewhere else in the city and were driven to the area.
Police are looking for the driver of the bullet-ridden gold Nissan Pathfinder which was found in a residential area that rarely experiences this kind of violence.
The victims identified as Adrian BANNERMAN, 29, Aaron MacDONALD, 20, and Kurt CHARLES, 27, all of Toronto, were pronounced dead at the scene early yesterday.
Police also said that the men had been in a nightclub earlier in the evening.
The shootings take the city's murder toll this year to 35, six of which happened in the past week.
Forty-one people were murdered at the same time last year.
"At this point we aren't certain that the shooting took place where the vehicle was located so we're making efforts to locate a shooting scene elsewhere," said Toronto police Homicide Squad Det. Dean BURKS as he spoke outside the cordoned-off street in the quiet, residential neighbourhood.

Sport utility vehicle's driver sought in triple homicide
By Timothy APPLEBY with files from Colin FREEZE and the Canadian Press, Page A1
Toronto -- Homicide detectives Sunday night were hunting the driver of a bullet-riddled sport utility vehicle, found abandoned in a tranquil Etobicoke neighbourhood with the bodies of three young men inside.
All three had been shot to death and then apparently driven in a stolen Nissan Pathfinder to Lunness Road near the intersection of Browns Line and Lake Shore Boulevard, close to the dividing line between west Toronto and Mississauga.
The trio were identified early last night as Adrian Inglis BANNERMAN, 29, Aaron Brendan MacDONALD, 20, and Kurt Atiba CHARLES, 27.
All three victims are from Toronto, pushing the city's homicide tally so far this year to 35.
Detective-Sergeant Dean BURKS of the homicide squad said the slain men had been at a nightclub a few hours earlier and that the incident may be gang-related.
The bodies and the gold-coloured sport utility vehicle were discovered at around 3 a.m. and identifying the men was initially complicated by the fact that they had apparently been stripped of their identification.
But clues swiftly began arriving as Friends and relatives converged on the scene in the early-morning hours, including a distraught man who said one of the victims was his younger brother.
“I know who did this, they killed my little brother” the man screamed as he ducked under the yellow crime-scene tape and ran toward the Nissan before being detained by police and taken to the 22 Division station for questioning.
Det.-Sgt. BURKS said none of the victims was in the driver's seat of the car and that the bodies had likely been transported to the neighbourhood from elsewhere. Highway 427 and the Queen Elizabeth Way are both a short drive from where the car was found.
As well, bullet holes in the Nissan's chassis indicated that the shooting was done from outside the car.
“We have information that there was another person in the vehicle and we're making efforts to locate that individual, ” Det.-Sgt. BURKS said.
Police said no one in the neighbourhood heard any gunshots or saw the car arrive on Lunness Road. The first cruisers on the scene arrived in response to a telephone tip.
Torrential, on-off rain throughout the morning further hampered the investigation.
The 10-year-old Nissan appears to have been stolen or borrowed. A check on its licence plate showed it to be registered to an Ontario resident with the Ukrainian surname CHORNOMAZ.
Contacted Sunday by The Globe and Mail, an Etobicoke woman with that name said she did not wish to discuss the matter.
Leafy and normally peaceful, Lunness Boulevard backs on to Alderwood Memorial Park and is part of a residential community where crime is rare.
“It's a great neighbourhood, everybody is friendly, something like this has never happened here before, ” a male resident said.
Word of what had happened, however, seems to have spread quickly.
As the investigation got under way, the Nissan protected from the rain by a tarpaulin, a young woman drove up and told a Globe photographer and police that she knew one of the victims and that she is pregnant with his child.
A second young woman who arrived with a group of male Friends said she was from Brampton and that she too knew at least one of the deceased.
Then came the man who said one of the victims was his brother.
The triple homicide brought the number of killings in Toronto over the previous week to six.
On Monday, William Ross MAGILL, 64, was stabbed to death at his mid-town apartment.
On Thursday, 17-year-old Shazad KHAWAJA was shot to death in the east end.
And in another homicide this past weekend, Michael WATSON, 28, was shot at a strip mall on Scarborough's Rylander Boulevard early Saturday morning.
In addition, four other people were wounded during the past week in non-fatal shootings.
Despite the short-term surge in killings, the year's homicide total of 35 is still six lower than it was at the same time last year.

Three killed in drive-by shooting by Etobicoke gang, sources say
By Matthew TREVISAN with a report from Timothy APPLEBY, Page A10
Three men found shot to death in a bullet-ridden sport utility vehicle were ambushed by members of an Etobicoke gang in a drive-by shooting on a westbound Toronto highway before their stolen vehicle was found in a nearby neighbourhood Sunday morning, police sources said yesterday.
"The basic theory is that it was the 10th Street Gang who did this, and they're bad guys," said a police officer familiar with the investigation. "They put a gun up against one of our people last year."
Another police source strongly played down the suggestion that the slaughter entailed any kind of in-house cleaning. The victims were known to police, sources said, but were not members of the 10th Street Gang, a loosely affiliated group of street cocaine dealers.
The bodies of Adrian BANNERMAN, 29, Aaron MacDONALD, 20, and Kurt CHARLES, 27, were found in an abandoned Nissan Pathfinder just after 3: 40 a.m. Sunday on Lunness Road, near the intersection of Browns Line and Lake Shore Boulevard.
Police said the driver of the sport utility vehicle, unharmed in the attack, abandoned the vehicle moments before another person, whose identity police are still trying to determine, called 911. The driver, who was also known to police, contacted them yesterday evening and is not considered a suspect in the shooting.
"He was in fear of being next," the first police source said, referring to why the man abandoned the car.
At a news conference at police headquarters yesterday, Detective Sergeant Dean BURKS told reporters that the men had been at Fluid Lounge in the entertainment district before driving west out of the city. Also at the club were the people suspected of later firing at the men, police said, but they have not received any information to suggest there was an altercation.
J. Randall BARRS, counsel for the night club's owner, Moses SABATINO, said the club has working video cameras that cover its entrances and exits. The club had to install the cameras after its liquor licence was revoked for 30 days in 2006, after Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario violations that included marijuana smoking on the premises.
Det. Sgt. BURKS said a black or dark-coloured sport utility vehicle approached the men on the right and started shooting "multiple" times.
The driver of the victims directed police to the Browns Line off-ramp of the Gardiner Expressway at Evans Avenue as a possible location of the shooting, but police found no shell casings there.
"I would not be surprised if we found shell casings at another location," Det. Sgt. BURKS said. Police are in the process of checking Ministry of Transportation cameras on Highway 427 and the Queen Elizabeth Way for any sign of the shooting.
Police are also still trying to determine what led to the incident. "You have to appreciate, we're less than 48 hours into the investigation, so we haven't been able to establish a concrete motive at this point," Det. Sgt. BURKS said.
In 2005, members of the 10th Street Gang intimidated passersby and rival gangs from an outpost in the Lake Shore Boulevard and Islington Avenue area of the west end. But a Toronto police investigation that May disrupted the drug operation, nabbing 13 dealers, more than 400 grams of cocaine and $38,500 in cash.
"I haven't heard [the name] since, and I don't want to hear it again, to tell you the truth," said Mark GRIMES, City of Toronto representative for Ward 6 Etobicoke-Lakeshore. "It's not like they're a big force down here."

Missing woman drowned
Body found in bathtub of Sutton home on same day as murder suspect killed himself, police say
By John GODDARD, Dale Anne FREED, Staff Reporters, March 12, A missing 27-year-old woman whose body was found in the bathtub of a sedate country home was drowned, an autopsy has determined.
The body of Brenda HEALEY was found Saturday in a latticed Sutton house on High St.
Police believe the Newmarket woman was murdered by a man who killed himself the same day.
On Saturday, Stephen DANIEL, 43, was struck by a train 50 kilometres east of Sutton, near Thorah, in Durham Region.
HEALEY and DANIEL were once co-workers at Have Bus Will Travel, a private transportation company serving the disabled and based in Pefferlaw, also east of Sutton, DANIEL's hometown.
HEALEY worked as a driver, DANIEL as a dispatcher.
DANIEL had lived at the home of his employers, Lois and Doug ANDREWS of Pefferlaw, for the past nine years. They never saw anything amiss, a shocked Lois ANDREWS had told the Star earlier.
But other residents said DANIEL had served time behind bars after he was convicted of stabbing a woman a decade ago.
DANIEL's car was found outside the Sutton home where HEALEY's body was found.
A car linked to HEALEY was found at the train tracks where DANIEL's body was found, police said.
Police said his death was deliberate.
"Durham police are investigating a suicide and we're investigating a homicide," said Duty Inspector John BURNESS of York Region police.
Currently, DANIEL is considered a suspect in HEALEY's murder.
"There's no other outstanding suspects," said Burness.
"However York Region homicide officers are continuing their investigation," said BURNESS.
"They want to make sure every avenue of the investigation is looked at before they come up with their conclusions."
DANIEL once lived next door to the Sutton home where HEALEY's body was found.
The owner of the home, John LEAROYD, had been recuperating in Newmarket hospital for the last month after injuring himself in a fall.
DANIEL had remained Friends with his former neighbour, a man in his 70s, acquaintances have said.
A funeral mass is to be said for HEALEY at Saint_John Chrysostom Roman Catholic Church in Newmarket at 10 a.m. Friday.
HEALEY's family was too distraught last night to talk about their loss.
"We're still grieving. Please give us our privacy," HEALEY's brother-in-law, Brian BAXTER, said from the dead woman's family home in Newmarket.
BAXTER said the family would be issuing their public message at the funeral.
Friends mourning the loss of Brenda HEALEY wrote of their loss on a Facebook page.
"She will always be remembered as a wonderful human being," wrote one friend.
"May you rest in peace, dear Brenda."

WATTERS, Shelagh Muriel (née DILLON)
Shelagh WATTERS died in Newmarket on June 22, 2008 after a short battle with cancer which she waged with dignity and courage. She is survived by her loving husband of 60 years, Doctor Neil WATTERS, and her devoted children, grandchildren and their families: Douglas WATTERS and daughter-in-law Maggie GOSSELIN, of Toronto, grand_son Isaac WATTERS, granddaughter Doctor Caitlin PEPPERELL and husband Ted BURNS of Menlo Park, California and great-granddaughter Myrna BURNS; Doctor James WATTERS and daughter-in-law Patricia WATTERS of Ottawa, grand_son Sean WATTERS and granddaughter Sarah WATTERS Michael WATTERS and daughter-in-law Terri WATTERS of Atherton, California and grand_sons Grant WATTERS and Neil WATTERS; and daughter Louise CRAIG and son-in-law Albert CRAIG, III, of Rochester, New York, and grand_son Albert CRAIG, IV. Born in Simcoe, Ontario on January 3, 1924, Shelagh was the eldest daughter of Brigadier M.M. DILLON and Muriel HICKS. She is survived by her brother Doctor Michael DILLON of London, her sister-in-law Elizabeth DILLON of Toronto and her sister Doctor Diana JOHNSON of Minden. She was predeceased by brothers John (1926,) Col. Richard DILLON (2008,) brother-in-law Gerald JOHNSON and sister-in-law Maggie DILLON. She grew up in London, Ontario during the 30's on a small farm, and took on family responsibilities from an early age. Shelagh graduated from high school at age 15, worked for an insurance company, and quickly decided this was not for her. She completed training in physiotherapy at the University of Toronto in 1944, and then joined the Royal Canadian Army Medical Corps as Lt. (N/S). She served in Ottawa and Montreal, and then at London Military Hospital, Crumlin, Ontario, where she met Neil. They were married in London on November 1, 1947, and lived briefly in Galt, in Toronto until 1987, and then at the farm in Cookstown, Ontario, with winters in Crystal River, Florida. Shelagh was guided by duty, love and beauty. She set herself high standards, often critical of her own work. An artist in all she did, she strove to bring harmony (at times to a house of unruly boys), nurturing both family and community. She had a special bond with her daughters-in-law and granddaughters, being both mentor and mother to all. A lifelong learner, she attended many University of Toronto extension courses. She was a figure skater in her youth, played the piano well and exposed her children to music. After trips to Europe, Shelagh became a fine chef. Her cooking was an inspiration to her daughter and daughters-in-law, and even to her sons. In latter years, bounty from Neil's garden in Cookstown was preserved for family and Friends. Each grandchild now treasures their own beautiful quilt, made by Shelagh and filled with personal references. She was an avid gardener. A member of the Garden Club of Toronto, she excelled at dried flower arrangements. Her gardens at Cookstown were included in tours. In the early 1970s, Shelagh joined the Association of Woman Electors, attending meetings at City Hall, helping to improve oversight and governance. Later in life Shelagh began to paint, and became a very accomplished watercolourist. She studied with distinguished teachers, a number of whom became lifelong Friends. We would like to thank the doctors and nurses of the Southlake Regional Health Centre for their skill and kindness to Shelagh, and invite those wishing to make a donation to consider the Southlake Regional Health Centre Foundation (www.southlakeregional.org/foun dation.html). The family invite Friends to visit us at the farm at Cookstown on Saturday, June 28 between two and six p.m., or to send messages of condolence to neilwatters3@gmail.com. Directions to the farm are at 705 458 9135.
