Victim #9-Gregory Taylor

21 year old Gregory Taylor was killed this past weekend in this horrible weekend of gun violence. Police responded to a shooting in the Blackcreek and Thretheway area in the west-end around 1:30am on Friday where Taylor was shot.

Witnesses report hearing at least 5 shots and the shooting was caught on camera. Taylor was charged in March 2009 with kidnapping and extortion after a 19-year-old man was taken from a Keele St. and Finch Ave. apartment. He was acquitted just before Christmas. Taylor was supposedly getting his life back together and recently just got back into school. He was shot and made it in the building but unfortunately assed away as he brother tried to get him to a hospital. Police are saying he was clearly ambushed.

This is really sad but it does seem like a case of his past catching back up with him. My condolences to his familly. May he rest in peace.
