12 Division announced this week that they arrested seven people for a shooting on Hickory Tree Crescent in March.
The police say that a 13-year-old boy was robbed of his cell phone on Tuesday, March 15. Later that night, a group of seven men and boys sought out the alleged mugger, who was in a group. The two groups were involved in a fight, and one of the vigilantes shot an 18-year-old man, who received non life-threatening injuries.
This week, Toronto police executed three search warrants, in Brampton and Toronto. They arrested seven people and charged them with a variety of serious offences.
The police also announced this week that they have DNA evidence in the case of a man murdered in 2011. Mohamed Wasughe was shot when he confronted two people burst into his apartment on Sidney Belsey Cr. Wasughe had a troubled history and a troubled life: at 55, he was suffering from early-onset Alzheimers, but he had also moved recently away from his wife and children and had also had a run in with law over drugs.
The police say they have a DNA profile of one of the the two men involved in Wasughe’s murder. They are asking anyone with information to come forward and are putting pressure on the murders, saying “If you are not the person who shot the victim, we have your DNA. You need to come forward and explain yourself.”
