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.
