Homicide #37 - Dominic Shearer-Hanomansingh

UPDATE #2- On Thursday, August 7, 2008, at 10:42 p.m., Jimmy Jason John, 19, of Toronto was arrested. He has been charged with Second Degree Murder.

UPDATE: I take blame for how this article was written as a facebook page called "STOP DEM RUMORSZ BOUT SUM1 GOT SHOT AT JAMAICA DAY.IT WAS 2 STREETS DOWN!" was recently created. The Admin expressed her anger with the fact that this shooting is being affiliated with Jamaica Day. I can see where she's coming from and her anger and frustration regarding this as personally myself as a Jamaican would not want Jamaica Day to get a bad wrap and the media does tend to twist stories and unfortunately I too twisted this story from reading what the media had to say. So the correction is that Dominic was not shot at the Jamaica Day event but rather it outside the gates in a different location which was supposedly two streets down. I was under the impression he handed out flyers at the exit but supposedly it's a different story.

The shooting that took place at Jamaica Day this weekend took the live of Dominic Shearer-Hanomansingh on Tuesday, three days later. Dominic attended Jamaica Day in order to pass out flyers to people leaving the JA day event.

The victim, only 20 years old had been shot in the face and cops also believe the suspect in his murder may have been stabbed.

A fight began with the victim over his chain and it looks as if the victim did not want to give it up. But the heartless suspect left a big clue. He dropped his baseball hat (pictured) and guess what, since watching CSI and Law & Order I know the suspect will be identified shortly as there's something called DNA.
The suspect is described as:
Wearing a short sleeved black T-shirt, possibly a black and red hooded sweatshirt, dark blue jeans
Black bandanna with metallic designs in either gold or silver
