Police video shows suspects in boy’s murder

The police have released video of three suspects in the murder of Jarryl Hagley at Pizza Pizza.

An SUV, probably a Toyota RAV4, parked on Little Ave, and three men (but not the driver) stepped out and walked to Pizza Pizza carrying a shotgun and a pistol under their hoodies. The car had a roof rack, a sunroof, and a tire mounted on the back and it may be a significant clue in the case.

One man smoked a cigarette while walking toward the Pizza Pizza. He stayed outside as a lookout, while the other two went in; one was armed with a shotgun, the other a handgun. The shooting inside lasted only seconds, during which time two shots were fired from the shotgun and four or five were fired from the handgun. One of the shotgun shots killed Hagley.

All the suspects fled towards Little Avenue; the lookout was the slowest of the group, and the police have an excellent view of his face. They reentered the car and fled down Little toward Lawrence.

Detective Worden said that Hagley and his friends had been involved in a dispute with the murderers over the past few months, and that there have been related shootings “in the surrounding area”. The murderers may not have targeted Hagley specifically, though; they  “aimed in the direction of that group and were hoping to hit as many people as they could”.

Worden said that Hagley and two of his friends were “known to police” and “they would be considered young offenders” so he “can’t go into too much detail about what the disputes were about”.

  1. Hey, where’s the Black Lives Matter group, denouncing this crime???

    Oh right…..because it doesn’t suit their narrative.

    R.I.P Jarryl Hagley.

  2. “Worden said that Hagley and two of his friends were “known to police” and had young-offender criminal records.”

    Oh, but hold on, in the Toronto Star (Oct 16, 2016) Hagley’s step mother says:
    Hagley was never in trouble with the law and was looked up to by his brothers and many other children in the community, Samuels said.

    As I said before, it’s people like these who lie about their kids ON RECORD, IN PUBLIC, and calling them “good” who refuse to acknowledge a problem, that society will not get better. Her lies and hypocrisy are disgusting. Shame on you, Trisha Samuels.

    Her words:
    “He will be remembered as a good boy — loving, kind, friendly. He loves to try to help everyone as much as he can.
    “Sometimes he even goes down to the point of giving his friends his clothes and his shoes to let them feel loved and welcomed in his household.”

    ….yet he had a young-offender criminal record?? You can’t have it both ways and lie about him. Gimme a break. Nice try, trying to make your son look better in the media. Some of don’t fall for that garbage. Thank you Mr. Norman for posting this article, highlighting Trisha Samuels’ lies.

    Anyone seen Black Lives Matter sniffing around this case? No? Didn’t think so. Cowards.

    1. Wow…such anger towards a woman who has lost her stepson! Even if he has a young offender record (which the article doesn’t specify, maybe it was his friends who had the records), it doesn’t mean he wasn’t a loving boy who helped others in his community. You have no idea what his story was, or what the record was for. The article wasn’t posted to ‘highlight Trisha Samuels’ lies’, it was to help raise awareness about what happened in case someone recognizes the suspects and can help bring justice for Jarryl Hagley. Stop victim blaming. Everyone who loses someone focuses on the good, especially those who feel the impact of a society that is so quick to judge young black men. If you want to have a real conversation about helping the youth in Weston, stop judging them and those around them and start learning about the root causes of violence and the issues affecting our youth.

  3. We have another problem here: (Oct 16)


    “Worden said although Jarryl came into contact with police over the past couple of years for “various things,” he wasn’t charged with any offences and Jarryl didn’t have a criminal record.”

    So we now have a problem with facts. We have Det. Paul Worden quoted as saying the kid was KNOWN to police,”and Jarryl didn’t have a criminal record.”
    Yet Mr. Norman, you have clearly shown here above that Det. Worden was saying that Jarryl DID have a police record under the young offenders act?

    “Worden said that Hagley and two of his friends were “known to police” and had young-offender criminal records.”

    So which is it? Please verify your info before you post it in public?

    1. I would like to point out that WestonWeb is run by volunteers for the benefit of the community. Our student writers are paid an honorarium thanks to generous donors. We are not professional journalists; we do this as a service to the community.

      Also, unlike you, we attach our own names to articles and comments.

      If our journalistic standards don’t meet with your approval you are invited to apply for a complete refund along with the suggestion that you find local publications more in keeping with your expectations. Failing that, you may wish to don your own sleuthing hat, dig out the pertinent details and share them in this forum.

    2. I encourage you to watch the second video. The detective said, “I’m limited in what I can say. Jarryl and his friends; they would be considered young offenders, and legally, I can’t go into too much detail.” It’s at 10:45.

      Regardless, let’s be clear: almost every young man is a young offender of some kind or another. I certainly was. I did all kinds of reckless things. That I was never arrested for some of them is a miracle—and, doubtless, due in part to the fact that I was white and lived in a upper-middle class town. I also encourage you to have a look at police “carding”. Young black men were disproportionately targeted for police stops and investigation. It was systemic racism of the highest order.

      Whether Jarryl Hagley had a criminal record ultimately matters very little if you ask me. He was a boy. Hence, the title. A boy was murdered. Regardless, I have replaced my interpretation of the detective with a quote from him.
