Homicide #60-Jordan Hosten

Another black man has lost his life to the bullet. On Christmas day an 18 year old was shot seven times. Jordan Hosten was enjoying Christmas day with his family in their Woolner Ave apt when he went out to get a calling card to call his mom in Grenada to wish her a Merry Christmas. He never returned and his dad was later notified that his son was shot to death.

Investigators say that Jordan nicknamed "Goonie" was likely ambushed and chased down. Police are looking to see if this is related to a shooting that occurred 90 minutes earlier where the victim showed up at a Mississauga hospital with a wound to the leg.

Killers have no heart. To kill this young man on Christmas Day or any day of course is just ridiculous. And I thought we'd go the rest of the year without a shooting.

WTH... Not Guilty Verdict in Murder of Ephraim

Rival gang members that decided to shoot up a backyard birthday party in 2007 have been found not guilty in the murder of 11 year old Ephraim Brown. Gregory Sappleton and Akiel Eubank, both 24 were found not guilty today with shooting the young victim.
The shooting took place in the Jane and Sheppard area back in July 2007. A witness testified there was a bad vibe at the party, where members of rival gangs began showing up. A full fledged shoot-out began amongst the men and there clearly was no regard for the young kids at the party or any other person in the area. Ephraim unfortunately was listening to his MP3 player at the time and didn't hear when he was warned to run, he was hit in the neck and died at the scene.
Defence tried to say their clients didn’t fire the shots that killed Ephraim and that a third man is involved. Jurors didn't believe a witness testimony identifying the suspects and they are now free. Both men once enemies hugged each other with tears in their eyes. What the hell! Ephraim's mom left the court sobbing after hearing the verdict. I'm personally lost for words. I personally do not believe justice was served. Hopefully these young men realize the second chance they wer given and make a change, Ephraim didn't get one, hopefully they push themselves to become better people.

Officer Charged in Shooting Death

Well surprise surprise, the police actually do charge their own.

I reported on Eric Osawe a couple months back after his family had emailed me. Eric was shot to death by a police officer two months ago in an Etobicoke raid. It has now been stated that the officer Const. David Cavanagh faces a manslaughter charge and will be going to court to face his alleged offence.

In the raid, police state that a fight ensued and Osawe was then shot. Eric's younger brother was also in the apartment at the time and was charged with firearm offences. Now we still don't know what the outcome will be but the best part is that a jury will decide his fate rather than his fellow police officers.

These cops need to learn when it is the appropriate time to use their weapons and think before they decide to fire their gun.

Homicide #58-Nicholas Yombo

Clearly there's some type of war going on down there and it needs to stop as young men are dying every week in Regent. This is the 4th victim in the past 6 weeks to die in Regent Park.

18 year old Nicholas Yombo was found Monday shot to death after a man believed to be the boys father ran down a cop cruiser for help. The teen was pronounced dead at the scene. The shooting occurred Monday around 2pm. Police state Yombo was involved in drug activity and even suffered a stabbing last week. Police are not saying whether there is some type of drug war going on in the area but of course are looking into it.

Last month Sealand White 15 and Jermaine Derby, 19 were gunned down in Regent Park. In November, Donald Grant was gunned down in Mississauga. The alleged shooter, Jerome Derby happens to be the brother of Jermaine Derby, the 19 year shot in Regent Park. See wanted profile on the right.

This the 11th shooting in 6 days and the 4th homicide in the one week.

Daughter Charged in Murder where 3 Black Men are Suspects

Well ain't that a bitch. So the daughter of the Chinese woman that was killed a few weeks back supposedly by 3 black men in Markham was arrested in connection with her own mothers murder. Police carried through their investigation and determined the daughter was the mastermind behind the whole thing. The 24-year-old has been charged with first-degree murder, attempted murder and conspiracy to commit murder.

The story was fishy from the beginning. The daughter was the only one unharmed, her dad was also shot in the incident but again she was not touched. The robbers went to a home leaving with barely nothing. Looks like someone wanted to make an insurance claim to me. I'm now actually wondering if the shooters were actually black now, this woman was probably lying about the whole thing.

Homicide #55-William Nathanson

Police were called to Jane and Sheppard close to 10pm on Monday night where they located a 19 year old male who has now been identified as William Nathanson. He had been shot several times. He was revived at one point but unfortunately succumbed to his injuries at the hospital.

Detectives are searching for two suspects. They say the first is male with a brown complexion, 5 feet 5 inches - 5 feet 6 inches tall, 120 - 130 lbs., and in his early 30s. He was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, black pants, and a blue baseball cap with ear flaps and was armed with a handgun.

He was wearing a grey zippered sweatshirt with a hood, a white shirt with a logo and dark jeans.

9 Shootings Since Friday....WTF!!!

Between Friday and Monday night there have been 9 shootings. 2 men dead. What the hell is going on with Toronto, not only that both murder victims are only aged 19 and 24. Young men once again, young minority men. A 17 year old was charged Saturday because he thought it was okay to flash a gun at a police officer. Now I actually for once can commend an officer, who normally would have shot the young boy. I've heard of situations where knives were waived and police pump 3 bullets into a man but this young boy is lucky his life was spared.

My question is why doesn't anyone value their life anymore. Not only that, these men feeling they have the right to take away someone's life. How is it that jail is okay that these men in no way want to better themselved and do right to avoid jail. What really is going on? Just when I think it's getting better, it gets worse and worse, what makes it more sad, is this mainly affect black people, black young men. 9

Homicide #53-Tyrone Bracken

UPDATE #2-Police have arrested a 3rd teen in connection with this murder. The teen is 17.

UPDATE: Two teens aged 16 and 17 have been arrested in relation to this murder. Both face first degree murder charges.

16 year old Tyrone Bracken was shot to death yesterday around 4pm in the Bathurst and Neptune Dr. area which is close to Wilson Ave. The 16 year old was found in a stairwell of a building and pronounced dead on the scene. Details surrounding the shooting have not been provided however residents in the area state that guns tend to go off monthly in the area and it has been getting worse and worse.

The victims get younger and younger, this is just sad. It honestly continues to piss me off that I have to report on our youth that continue to diminish day by day by a bullet.

Shooting in Jane/Finch Mall

So two dummies, tried to shoot a guy in the mall, in front of many people and managed to shoot the boy but only got him the leg. Meanwhile many onlookers saw their faces, pointed them out security and even managed to see the taxi these boys hopped into. Police of course caught up with the fools and even recovered the gun.

The boys were trying to rob the 17 year old boy. The boys were apprehended near Finch and the 400. Charged. The two suspects have been identified as Tristan Cox, 23 and Francis Koroma, 23 both of Toronto. Grown ass men, just pathetic.

Trial Underway - Ephraim Brown

The trial regarding the murder of 11-year old Ephraim Brown has finally begun. Ephraim was killed in a gun battle between rivaling youth back in July of 2007. Ephraim was at a gathering with his six year old cousin near the Jane/Sheppard complex when he was caught in the crossfire.

The crown says they will have a witness testify about the bad vibe at the party and a not well thought out guest list. The two rival gangs, Baghdad Crew and Five Point Generals which include the accused men Gregory Sappleton and Akiel Eubank were in each others faces before they fired shots.

Ephraim had missed a warning for him to run as he was listening to his MP3 player, he was shot in the neck and died on the spot. Both Gregory and Akiel have been charged with second degree murder and will face the courts.

Police Shooting - Eric Osawe

Unfortunately black men continue to be the target of police officers and here is a story of a police shooting I forgot to touch on.

Eric Osawe, 26 was shot dead one month ago by police following a raid in an Etobicoke apartment on September 29. At 1:30am, ETF officers entered the upscale apartment near Bloor and Dundas when executing a search warrant. During the raid, it is said a fight ensued with the victim and the police, and a shot was fired.

The victim Eric Osawe, was trying to turn his life around after previous run-ins with the law. He was a father of 2 and decided he needed to change his life for them. He was working and going to get his forklift license.
Eric's younger brother Ebony, was also in the apartment at the time, he has been charged with various firearm offences.
This continues to bother me, as I don't understand why police feel the need to fire in certain situations. This is definitely something that needs to be fixed.

Homicide #51-Albert Kiwubeyi

UPDATE: The victim has been identified as Albert Kiwubeyi, 24, of Toronto.

Reward Offered in Year Old Murder

A reward of $50,000 has been offered in the shooting death of Tevon Mitchell which occurred just over a year ago in the summer of 2009. Tevon attended a house party in the Scarborough area and was shot while standing in the front yard of a luxurious Scarborough home.

Two vehicles drove by at the time but only one vehicle had an assailant firing rounds at the house. Tevon, a grade 12 student at West Hill did not lead a lifestyle that would cause something like this to happen and police are continuing to look for leads. He died from a gunshot wound to the stomach.

His mother went to the media, begging for help to find her son's killer.

Homicide #45/#46-Jermaine Derby/Sealand White

Toronto continues to lose more youth as this is the second time in few weeks that two young men hanging out together have lost their lives to gun violence.

Shortly after 2am on Saturday, Jermaine Derby, 19 and Sealand White, 15 (pictured) were shot and killed after attending a party in the Regent Park area.

Police state that both young men were coming down an elevator when gunshot rung out as soon as the elevator doors opened. One of the victims exited the building after being shot and collapsed on the driveway, the other victim made his way up in an elevator and collapsed after exiting.

Police have no suspects as of yet. This continues to sadden me as our black youth are dying at an alarming rate.

Homicide #43/#44-Courthney Facey/Mike James

Two young black men lost their lives this past week once again to a bullet and it may have been a case of mistaken identity. 18 year old Courthney Facey and 23 year old Mike James was shot an killed on Wednesday in the Weston and Lawrence area.

My Bad.. Mistaken Identity

Ok so I'm getting messages on the blog about Shaun stating that it was a case of mistaken identity in the Fairview mall shooting so I'm going to clear this up before everyone gets mad at me.

Shaun Mobeen turned himself in after police assumed he was the individual that boldly shot at a security officer after stealing some cologne and being chased through the mall. In my original posting I stated that Shaun was a friend of the man they are now looking for, Christopher Alexander and I also stated police now know who they are looking for because Shaun gave them the info. I apologize for assuming.

Photos released to the public showed Shaun as a suspect in the Fairview mall shooting but Shaun confirmed he was at a studio during that time. Shaun now plans on suing the Toronto Police for defamation and all.

I apologize for my error in assuming. My apologies to Shaun, his family and friends.

Face of an Idiot

This dummy, Christopher Alexander, 27 (this is a grown ass man) decided he would try to steal some cologne from the Bay in Fairview Mall located in the Don Mills/Sheppard area 2 days ago. The fool was chased through the mall after it was spotted that he was shoplifting and in the busy food court he decided to take out his weapon and attempt to shoot at the security officer that was running after him. No regard for any human life and how much danger he put other individuals in. But that's not the funniest part, the dummy dropped the weapon so the gun was recovered after he let off a shot. All of this not to face a shoplifting charge.

Police are looking for 27-year-old Christopher Alexander (pictured). He is described as black, 5 feet 10 inches tall, with a medium build and dark hair pulled back in a bun. He was wearing a red t-shirt and baggy blue jeans.

Homicide #40-Jerome Lee Ellington

Homicide #39-Jahmeel Spence

A mother has faced tragedy for a second time in 15 years. She faced the death of her 15 year old son, Ishmail Spence in 1996 after he was stabbed to death at Kennedy subway in Scarborough. She now got the unfortunate news on Friday that her 27 year old son Jahmeel Spence was shot to death in the Markham and Lawrence area.

Murder Suspect Caught

Sorry for the late update, been busy these past few weeks. Police have finally caught up with a suspect in a 2009 murder of a man in Pacific Mall. You may have noticed on the right hand side of this website we had a wanted poster for Bryan Valentine Gardner in relation to the February 2009 murder of 26-year-old, Chun Kit "Daniel" Cheong in a cell phone shop in the popular Pacific Mall.

Cheong was shot in the head for reasons unknown but speculations by witnesses state the suspect may have been upset over a purchase from the cell phone shop.Gardner was apprehended in London Ontario on September 1. Chael Mills was also arrested in London, Ontario in relation to a Toronto murder a few weeks ago. Looks like London is becoming a safe haven for criminals. Gardner has been returned to the York region and will face first degree murder charges.

Police Shooting in Scarborough

So the police have killed another black man and the question is once again was it justifiable?This past Sunday, 25 year old Reyal Jensen Jardine-Douglas was shot by police after exiting a TTC bus in the Victoria Park and Eglinton area. Reyal fled the Victoria Park bus after it was pulled over. Police were originally called to the bus due to an incident occurring on the bus. It is stated that Reyal exited at the back of the bus and was then shot up to 5 times by police.

A knife was recovered from the scene and I'm assuming the police felt threatened with a knife even though they have big glocks to defend themselves. Family and friends do admit that Jardine-Douglas did have mental and emotional issues and are actually not surprised by this whole ordeal. I'm not against cops at all but I'm against cops being trigger happy. A knife cannot do as much damage as a gun. Why not shoot the man in his leg if anything but to shoot him in his upper body with at least 5 bullets is completely unnecessary.

Witness accounts of the entire ordeal is conflicting, some saying police shot him in his back, some saying he was trying to hurt the cops so the turnout of this entire case will be interesting. My prediction is the cops will be off in a couple of months.

Even if it was stated the cop cold bloodily killed this man, cops investigating cops will always ensure the cop is good. How many times have we really seen a cop go to jail for shooting someone. UMMMMMM NEVER!! So no need for the investigation. I'm not calling racism in this cause I think they would have done the same thing to a white man, just like they did out there in Branford last week, I'm just against cops not using proper judgement in certain situations. Just my opinion.

Letter from a Mother

My son was stabbed to death on March 30th of this year. He was only 16. Killed by a 18yr old who went to the same school. My son was a asset to the community and a great football player, but even a better son and friend.If you google it you will see all kinds of stories about it.

Oshawa will never be the same. Suspect is in custody charged with 2nd degree murder. I wish I had of came across this website months ago, but I'm sure he can be added to all the sad lives lost.

Durham Homicide #7-Chris Tshilombo

Not to many times will you hear of a homicide in Ajax but unfortunately one did occur last night leaving a 17 year old dead.

Trial Closed: Jose Hierro Saez

A drive-by shooting that occurred back in June 2007 taking the life of Jose Hierro Saez (left) has now come to a close. Anthony Grant, 24 and Devon Vivian, 23 (below) have been found guilty in the brazen daylight shooting of Saez who was shot while driving with 4 other friends on John Garland Blvd.

Both men are also facing 4 counts of attempted murder as they shot into the vehicle which had 4 other occupants.
Grant and Vivian flew off to Jamaica thinking they could get away with murder but were extradited to Toronto to stand trial. The jury was deadlocked as one individual did not agree both individuals were guilty. But after further deliberation and many notes to the judge they had finally reached a verdict. Also it is said the holdout jurors husband wanted his wife at his bedside in the hospital. I'll bet you an appeal will be filed and they'll say the holdout juror probably decided guilty because of her frustrated husband and just wanted to get it over with. I'll keep you updated.
Young and dumb boys making stupid decisions before thinking about the consequences. It's sad to see at 24 and 23, Anthony Grant and Devon Vivian decided this was the route to go in life.
