Police seeking possible links between deadly North York shootings

Posted on 09 September 2017 by admin

Toronto police say there are “similarities” in the way two men were shot dead last week, one near an apartment building and one inside Sheridan Mall.

 Four suspects are wanted in separate shootings within three days that left two men dead in North York.

Police haven’t ruled out a connection between the brazen attacks.

“We can’t overlook the fact that there are similarities between the two,” said homicide investigator Det. Sgt. Paul Worden at a Sunday press conference. So far, however, police have no physical evidence connecting the crimes.

Among the most chilling observations from police in the fatal shootings of Jovane Clarke, 22, on Thursday and Awad Hurre, 34, on Saturday is the manner in which the men were killed.

“They went right up over top of them and fired numerous shots into the victims,” Worden said, describing the similar position the four suspects in each case took over the two dead men.

The suspects towered above the victims once they were lying helpless on the ground and fired more gunshots into their bodies, Worden said.

There were dozens of people outdoors, including kids playing at the basketball court behind the apartment building at 75 Tandridge Cres., when Hurre was killed.

Police were called to the building, next to Braeburn Woods Day Care Centre at Tandridge Cres. and Arcot Blvd on Saturday at 8:45 p.m.
