Homicide #35-Byron Jones

Police responded to a shooting in the west end on Sunday and located the body of 20-year old Byron Jones who was found dead in the apartment stairwell. The building located on Mabelle Ave is no stranger to homicides and shootings. Several homicides and shootings have taken place in the area within the last year.

Toronto Sun says the 20-year-old was under strict house arrest and was to have been in his downtown home, conditions imposed on him after being charged with three counts of robbery with a firearm of a small business last December. There's no info as to why he was in the area.

Three men were seen running from the building at around 8:30 p.m. Police were notified an hour later, meaning Jones lay dead for a while. Two of the men were wearing hoodies over their head and the third suspect was wearing a white t-shirt.
