Subway Shooting Suspect Named

UPDATE: Accompanied by his lawyer, Curt John surrendered to 31 Division just after 11pm Sunday February 1. On Monday February 2 he was denied bail. THANK GOD!

Police have now named a suspect in last week's Osgoode subway shooting. Police are looking for 21 year old Curt John. Police have pretty much determined that Curt is a menace to society and needs to be off the streets. John is wanted in connection with several criminal matters:

-Warrant for arrest on attempted murder and several firearms charges have been issued in connection with the Jan. 22 incident at Osgood station
-Warrant for arrest on a charge of being an accessory after the fact to a July 26, 2008 homicide in 32 Division
-Warrant for arrest on charges relating to a pistol-whipping and vehicle theft that occurred on Wednesday

The victim in the subway shooting is said to know of Curt John and an argument on the subway line is what sparked the shooting.
Investigators believe Curt also allowed his cousin to use his I.D. after his relative was allegedly involved in the murder of 20-year-old Dominic Shearer-Hanomansingh (picture left) during the Jamaica Day festivities on July 26, 2008. "The allegations against Curt John with respect to that homicide relate to allowing Jimmy John to use his name to obtain some medical care as well as disposing of evidence," confirmed Det. Sgt. Brian Borg.

Police are asking for the public's assistance with getting this man off the street.
