Homicide #29-Justin Brunet
Justin Brunet, 21 (pictured) was gunned down in the east end yesterday as he was walking in a housing complex in the Victoria Park and Lawrence Ave. area. Investigators state that Brunet supposedly had survived being shot in the head in the past.
The young man was shot multiple times in his head and another man was also shot when gun fire erupted in the complex.
Witnesses reported seeing about 7 individuals running and a few of them jumping into a black Nissan. Justin had just been dropped off into the area by a friend and was killed a few minutes later. The friend stated all Justin did was ensure he could provide for his kids. He was a good kid, not into gangs or guns which is why the shooting comes as a shock to his family. It could have been just that he was in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Police are still interviewing witnesses to get further details on the case.
