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.

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.

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.
