Downtown shooting leaves 2 dead
Mayor calls Prime Minister's Office over growing problem of gun smuggling from United States
By Unnati GANDHI, Tuesday, August 9, 2005, Page A8
Homicide investigators combed through Toronto's latest crime scene yesterday, still finding shell casings hours after a downtown shooting left two people dead and sent one to hospital during another weekend of gun violence.
At the intersection of Maitland Place and Homewood Avenue, police forensic officers placed seven pylons on a patch of grass indicating new evidence by a blood-soaked white jersey with flies hovering over it.
One investigator found a shell casing in a gutter by the jersey and took it away for testing, while others analyzed a bullet hole in the side wall of a house next to the crime scene.
Just before 4 a.m. yesterday, gunfire erupted near the popular Phoenix nightclub on Sherbourne Street, where police found 19-year-old Ali Mohamud ALI, the city's 41st homicide victim, shot in the head and a 20-year-old man with non-life-threatening injuries.
Minutes later, a police cruiser was flagged down at nearby Jarvis and Bloor Streets. Inside a car was 23-year-old Loyan Mohammed AHMED suffering from multiple gunshots. He died later in hospital.
While certain neighbourhoods in Toronto have been the scene of more than 20 shootings in the past two weeks, resulting in six homicides, Mayor David MILLER maintained that the increased gun violence in the city is an anomaly.
"What is happening with these shootings is not Toronto," he told a news-media briefing yesterday afternoon, which Toronto Police Chief Bill Blair also attended.
"And Torontonians are not going to tolerate a city where guns are used to settle disputes between people."
While mayor and the chief said steps are being taken to prevent more gang-related violence, there have been no arrests in the three most recent slayings.
Efforts such as redeploying about 50 uniformed police officers to the northwest corner of the city since last Thursday has left Chief Blair looking to fill gaps in other neighbourhoods after yesterday's incidents.
"We also want to assure those in our most vulnerable communities that officers will be redeployed from across the city and from across the service, without depleting resources in all of our neighbourhoods because public safety in all of our neighbourhoods of Toronto is important," he said.
"We are finding ways within our organization to move officers in uniform into these neighbourhoods."
Chief Blair reported that police have seized 2,170 guns since the beginning of the year. Half of the guns used in crimes in the city had been smuggled from the United States, underscoring an issue Mr. MILLER brought up during a spate of violence last week that saw one person killed and five wounded by gunfire, including a four-year-old boy.
"There's no question that there are more guns being used in crimes and it's a serious issue," Mr. MILLER said yesterday, adding that he had spoken to the Prime Minister Paul Martin's office yesterday.
"The Prime Minister's Office assured me that they're already working to try to deal with the issue of gun smuggling."
On Sunday night, two men aged 27 and 17 were taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries after what police said may have been a drive-by-shooting in the Markham Road and Eglinton Avenue East area.
On Friday night, 27-year-old Melbourne WHITTICK was shot and killed in the city's northeast while waiting for a bus on Victoria Park Avenue. He had become involved in an altercation with two men and died of a single shot to the abdomen.
"We have seen that there's a significant increase in the number of homicides that have taken place in the city as a result of firearm use and we're also seeing a great deal of that increase in that much of that violence is taking place in very public places," Chief Blair said.
He stressed that in these cases, the public's help is still what is going to catch the offenders, citing a fourfold increase in the number of calls to Crime Stoppers in the past week.
"We have received a record number of calls to Crime Stoppers and I think that reflects the concerns that the community and the citizens of Toronto have about the violence we have experienced."
Near the Maitland-Homewood crime scene yesterday, with the beeping of a police metal detector in the background, area resident Joanne BRIGDEN said violence was bound to have affected her neighbourhood sooner or later and there is nothing anyone can do about it.
"It was a matter of time before our area was hit," said Ms. BRIGDEN, whose house backs onto the Phoenix nightclub.
But the gun violence of the past few weeks is not scaring her, she added.
"Maybe there's a little increase in crime, but unless you assign a cop to every criminal," it's not going to stop any time soon, she said.

Shootings claim two more lives
'Gun crime is not the Toronto that any Torontonian expects'
By Betsy POWELL with files from Vanessa L: UQQ, Crime Reporter
The group of Friends had just left the Phoenix Concert Theatre on Sherbourne St. in downtown Toronto after enjoying its weekly reggae music and hip hop night.
They were heading to a car parked on a nearby street just before 4 a.m. yesterday, when a man came up to them and fired several shots. Two men died and another was hurt.
Police don't believe the gunman knew the victims. What they do know is that guns have been used in more slayings this year than in all of 2004.
Ali Mohamud ALI, 19, died instantly in the shooting early Monday near Homewood Ave. and Maitland Pl. A 20-year-old man was also hit.
Friends tried to drive Loyan Mohammed AHMED, 23, to a nearby hospital. A few blocks away, near Bloor and Jarvis Sts., they waved to police for help. An ambulance came but paramedics weren't able to save him.
Twenty-three people have been shot in Toronto in the past two weeks, including a 4-year-old boy.
"It's a very serious concern," Mayor David MILLER told a news conference yesterday at police headquarters that was also attended by police Chief Bill Blair and members of the police services board.
"Gun crime is not the Toronto that any Torontonian expects," the mayor said.
"We do not expect to have shooting incidents of the kind that happened last night behind a popular nightclub to happen in this city."
Police don't know if the gunman was in the nightclub and they don't know what motivated the shooter.
While police believe many recent shootings in the city are "retaliatory" and are part of gang wars, there is nothing to suggest the deaths of ALI and AHMED were gang-related, said homicide Staff Insp. Jeff McGUIRE.
Seven men have been killed with guns since July 30. Just one arrest has been made.
"They are the most difficult to solve and they are the ones most often related back to gang-related violence," said McGUIRE.
Police have seized 2,470 firearms so far in 2005, said Blair. The majority of the handguns that were used in crime have been traced to the United States.
MILLER repeated his pledge to push the federal government for action on firearms smuggling, saying authorities have a difficult time catching gun runners. The mayor said he has even heard of snowbirds -- the Canadians who flock to sunnier climes in the winter -- bringing guns into this country illegally.
No weapon was recovered after early yesterday's shooting.
Yesterday there were three areas cordoned off by yellow police tape in the downtown core, one at Maitland Pl. and Homewood Ave., another at Jarvis and Bloor Sts., where a green Malibu straddled the southbound lanes of Jarvis with its two doors ajar.
Yellow tape was also in front of the Phoenix, though McGUIRE emphasized police don't believe anything happened there.
One resident of a highrise on Wellesley St. overlooking Homewood, got up shortly before 4 a.m. and looked out the window after hearing voices.
"I thought it was just hookers out there having another hooker fight," said the man, who asked that his name not be used.
He said he spotted what looked like two groups of men facing each other.
"Then there was four quick pops and then two pops and the noise sounded like a cap gun... and kaboom, one's down," he said, adding he didn't see who pulled the trigger or from which direction it came.
He called 911 and went on to his balcony and saw one man splayed over another lying on the ground, bleeding and with some clothing clumped to the side of his neck.
"He was screeching 'Call police, call an ambulance.' "
Yesterday, there was a pool of blood on the roadway, beside a white windbreaker-style jacket.
Another resident of the building, Bruce McCUBBIN, was sleeping in his apartment when his girlfriend awoke after hearing the sound of four or five gunshots. They got up and went to the balcony, which also faces south, and watched what happened next.
"One man was lying on the ground with another crouched over him holding what looked like a towel to his head and there was blood coming from him."
He saw another man leaning against a post who appeared to be hit in the arm. "It was difficult to see because it was so dark."
He heard someone yelling, "Call the cops, call the cops," and others panicking. "There was voices all over the place but... there was people screaming up the street."
McCUBBIN, an ex-police officer in Glasgow, contrasted the recent "crazy" period of gun violence in Toronto to what he saw back home.
"Glasgow is a violent city in a way but more stabbings, slashings, and people don't really carry guns because there's strict gun laws in Britain," he said. "But here, I've never seen anything like what I saw last night, even with two years on the police force, I didn't see anything as bad as I saw last night on the street. It was terrible."
Yesterday police officers combed the area and used a metal detector on the grass around a large Victorian brick home at the corner of Homewood and Maitland that was hit by a bullet.
The occupants declined to speak to reporters.
In the past five days, the Toronto Police Service has redeployed approximately 50 officers from throughout the service up into the northwest part of the city, which has had a number of shooting incidents, but also into Scarborough and downtown neighbourhoods plagued with gun violence, Blair told the news conference.
Both he and McGUIRE, however, said the city is not collapsing with gun or youth violence and blamed "a small few" for terrorizing neighbourhoods.
Back near Homewood Ave., a woman who identified herself as Lisa, and didn't want her last name used, was walking with her two children past the police tape on Wellesley St. She said she is sickened by the violence but looks to understand what is driving it.
"Toronto is segregated and they are marginalized, not part of society. They're bad guys, suffering mental illness, who grew up in poverty and have little hope of finding jobs so they turn to the underworld and guns."

An 'unbelievable' loss
Families try to cope with gun slayings of two young men
Summer weekend began with a wedding and ended in death
By Henry STANCU and Patrick EVANS, Staff Reporters
More than 1,000 people are expected at an Etobicoke mosque this morning to mourn the deaths of two young men killed early Monday and to pray for Toronto's gun violence to end.
Loyan Ahmed GILAO, 23, and Ali Mohamud ALI, 19, will be honoured in a 9 a.m. service at the Khalid Bin Al Waliid mosque on Bethridge Rd. near Kipling Ave.
Last night, throngs of people visited, telephoned and emailed the two Friends' families in Etobicoke and Richmond Hill.
Mohamed GILAO, a prominent member of the Somali community in Toronto, described his son's death as "unbelievable" and the outpouring of condolences as "overwhelming."
"Every week, we had set aside one day to communicate as father and son, but lately Loyan has been busy; we didn't have that opportunity in the seven days before he died. That's the sad part," he said, weeping.
"My wife (Ayan OSMAN) is very strong for me and we are leaning on each other."
GILAO, a third-year York University commerce student, and ALI were celebrating with a group of Friends Sunday, the day after serving in the wedding party at a friend's marriage.
The two were gunned down after a night out at the Phoenix Concert Theatre on Sherbourne St. They were with a group of six to seven men, standing at the corner of Homewood Ave. and Maitland Place after leaving the nightclub.
A man walked toward them on Homewood and, without any words, pulled out a handgun and fired several times toward the group, police said.
ALI died from a gunshot wound to the head and GILAO died from a gunshot wound to the chest, an autopsy showed yesterday.
GILAO had been planning to announce his engagement to his girlfriend Zainab ALI in the coming months.
The elder GILAO, who has travelled several times on peace missions to his homeland, is a respected figure in both the Somali community and across Greater Toronto.
He was praised as a major "touchstone" in a community that transcends culture, religion and politics. Friends said the elder GILAO was given the Queen's Golden Jubilee Award two years ago and honoured with a Young Men's Christian Association Peace Medallion for helping people in his adopted community and homeland.
The couple, who immigrated to Canada from Somalia in 1990, have four daughters, 8 to 20.
In Richmond Hill, ALI's grieving family received relatives and Friends at their house. ALI's uncle, Ahmed JAMA, said that since Monday as many as 500 people had come to pay their respects.
About two dozen mourners stood outside the home last night, talking in small groups and keeping a quiet watch on ALI's father, mother and three sisters. Visitors pulled up in a steady stream of cars. Neighbours came on foot.
ALI's father, Mahamud JAMA, said his son moved to Vancouver eight months ago to chase his dreams. He said ALI dreamed big, with all the energy and optimism of a 19-year-old man who had just begun to make his way in the world.
"He had a lot of ambitions," JAMA said. "He was planning to open a business, his own trucking company. He would say, 'Dad, this is what I'm planning. I know I need to work hard.'"
JAMA said ALI came back two weeks ago for the wedding.
He made a full vacation out of his Toronto visit, arriving just in time for Caribana two weekends ago, spending time with his family and attending the wedding on Friday. JAMA said ALI's holiday was almost over when he was killed. "He had a rental car due Monday."
JAMA said his son wasn't involved in any gang or criminal activity. "My kid has never been with any gang," he said. "He was not violent. He had no record with the police."
The gun violence in Toronto has cost JAMA his only son, and he's furious about it.
"Get rid of the thugs who are killing innocents," he said. "We are grieving now. Every day another family is grieving. The city has to clear this sort of thing up. We have to get rid of these guns."
ALI was born 19 years ago in Hargeisa, Somalia. His family came to Canada when he was 2.
Police are seeking a man in his 20s, 5-foot-10 to 6 feet and 150 to 160 pounds, with black braids and a goatee. He was wearing jeans, a black T-shirt and a blue do-rag.

Victims didn't provoke killer
Friends shot 'execution-style'
1,500 at funeral for slain men
By Isabel TEOTONIO, Staff Reporter
There was no altercation, no sideways glance, not even an exchange of words.
A man who watched in horror as two of his Friends were shot to death execution-style told the Toronto Star yesterday that nothing had occurred that would have provoked the attack.
The Friends had just left the Phoenix Concert Theatre early Monday morning. "We were having a good time, just celebrating. We never had any arguments, no problems," he said yesterday before attending the double funeral for Loyan Ahmed GILAO, 23, and Ali Mohamud ALI, 19.
"It all happened so fast, in a split second. I was walking behind ALI and he shot him point-blank, execution-style," said the friend, who spoke on condition of anonymity.
"There was no one on the sidewalk, just two prostitutes on the road. We didn't expect it. All you hear is multiple shots and then nothing. And then multiple shots."
ALI died from a gunshot wound to the head, while GILAO died from a gunshot to the chest. A third man was also hurt in the shooting around 4 a.m.
Before the tragic turn, the trio had been with about a dozen of their buddies at the Sherbourne St. club capping off a celebratory weekend that included a friend's wedding.
While at the club, there were no problems between any of the group members and anyone else at the club, said the friend with certainty.
After leaving, a group of five headed to a car parked near Homewood Ave. and Maitland Pl. where a man approached them and, without warning, opened fire, said the friend.
"It doesn't make sense," he said at the Etobicoke mosque yesterday where 1,500 people united in grief to pay their final respects to the men, heralded as leaders within the Somali community.
"They weren't into anything bad," he said, ruling out gang ties or retaliation.
His sentiments were echoed by many who said the overwhelming turnout was a testament to how deeply the pair were loved and admired.
"As a collective Somali community we are grieving, they were killed for nothing," said ALI's aunt, Khadija ABDI. " All of us are shocked, except for the parents. I think they are dead inside."
Both families moved to Canada during the 1980s to give their children a better and safer life, she said. But in a sad twist of fate, the young men were victims of the kind of violence their parents wanted to shield them from.
"Loyan's father has been very active in the community promoting peace, and now to have his son killed in that context is very tragic," said Cassandra FERNANDES, a policy and community consultant for the city who attended the funeral yesterday on behalf of the mayor.
GILAO's father, Mohamed GILAO, is a prominent and well-respected member of Toronto's Somali community who has travelled on various peace missions to his homeland.
Yesterday both GILAO's and ALI's parents were too overwhelmed to speak publicly about the loss of their firstborn and only sons. ALI's mother, Suleka HUSSEIN, already fragile from a heart condition, was so overcome with grief that she fainted by the entrance moments after viewing her son's body.
One of about a dozen police officers on duty in front of the Khalid Bin Al Waliid mosque was on hand to help. Minutes later paramedics arrived to treat HUSSEIN, who was well enough to return inside shortly after.
Relatives of both men, some of whom travelled from British Columbia, Alberta and Virginia to attend the funeral, spoke warmly of the young men's benevolent spirits.
"ALI was a generous person, always giving to people what he had," said his sister, Amran Ali JAMA.
Her red-rimmed eyes filled with tears when she added, "it was just the wrong place and wrong time."
GILAO, nicknamed Banks because he'd always find spare change for children, would literally take the shirt off his back for a friend, said aunt Hawa GILAO.
"He only had one-third of the clothing he bought in his closet," she said, adding, "he loved to help people."
In an effort to "continue his legacy" and keep his memory and name alive, the GILAO family is thinking of starting a foundation in his name, she said, adding the money would likely go to families who've lost children to violence.
Friends of the duo remembered them as bright young men with bright futures. "Loyan was the sweetest person you could ever come across," said Roda ALI, who was Friends with both men.
"And ALI, he could've been somebody really great. They were both the perfect children."
GILAO, a third-year York University commerce student, was planning to propose to his girlfriend of three years in the coming months.
Meanwhile, ALI had recently moved to Vancouver, where he was trying to start a trucking company. He had returned to Toronto for his friend's wedding and was scheduled to go back to British Columbia early this week.
After the funeral service, mourners made their way to Beechwood Cemetery, where both men were buried.
