Homicide #23-Andrew Naidoo
The shooting of Andrew Naidoo sparked outrage not only in the neighbourhood he comes from but also from all around the GTA as Naidoo is only 15 years old. Once again a young teen gunned down so violently and a family and community just looking for answers.
On May 29, 2011, Andrew was shot multiple times in the housing complex located close to Martingrove and Finch. Witnesses and family say Naidoo wasn’t involved with drugs or gangs, she said. “But someone you know knows someone who is . . . and kids get drawn into that circle.” as stated in the Toronto Star. Naidoo became the 13th shooting victim of the year and definitely the youngest.
It begs us to question, what is going on and what is wrong with society now, how will this be fixed.
