Man becomes city's 64th homicide
By Jennifer LEWINGTON, Page A16
A 26-year-old Mississauga man shot in the downtown core early yesterday became Toronto's 64th homicide of the year.
Police identified the victim as Dennis Kwame OPPONG and said he died in hospital as a result of gunshot wounds to the head.
The incident occurred in front of a Toyota dealership next door to The Globe and Mail on Front Street near Spadina Avenue, a few blocks from the city's late-night club district.
Homicide investigators are seeking the assistance of the occupants of five vehicles travelling eastbound on Front Street at the time of the homicide, one of which was a taxi. Surveillance videotape is also being reviewed.
About 3 a.m., Globe and Mail security guards heard a noise that "sounded like gunshots," said Jamil KHAN, manager of facilities and services for The Globe.
When they went outside to investigate, they saw a man with "trauma to the head" lying on the north sidewalk in front of the service bay door of the car dealership, he said.
The security guards immediately contacted police and paramedics.
Police cordoned off Front Street west of Spadina for most of the day yesterday as detectives and forensic experts searched for indicators of a possible motive for the shooting and other clues.
witnesses: or anyone else with information about the incident can contact Toronto Police at 416-808-1404 or call Crime Stoppers anonymously at 416-222-8477.
The number of homicides in the city so far this year is 11 fewer than it was at the same time in 2005, a tally that by year's end reached 78. There have been 26 gun homicides so far this year, exactly half the number of gun homicides in all of 2005.
This year's homicide total of 64 so far matches the total for all of 2004.

Convicted killer shot dead
Slain 26-year-old was convicted a decade ago for stabbing a teenager to death at the Kennedy subway station
By John DUNCANSON, Staff Reporter
A Mississauga man convicted of killing a 15-year-old about a decade ago was shot to death yesterday outside a car dealership on Front St. W. near Spadina Ave.
So far, police have no suspects in the murder of Dennis Kwame OPPONG, 26, who was shot in the head around 3 a.m.
OPPONG, also known as "Dennis the Menace" was charged back in early 1996 with second-degree murder, and later convicted, in the stabbing death of Ishmael SPENCE. Both were just 15-year-olds at the time of the murder.
SPENCE was on his way home around 4 p.m. when he was confronted by OPPONG at a bus platform at the Kennedy subway station.
The youth was fatally stabbed and police at the time took out a special warrant to name OPPONG, then a young offender. He spent several days on the lam before he was arrested, police said.
Police couldn't say last night how much time OPPONG spent in jail for the SPENCE murder.
Security cameras at the Toronto Transit Commission station captured images of SPENCE clutching his chest and staggering through the crowded station before he collapsed near a kiosk and died.
There was a theory at the time that OPPONG may have been part of an east-end gang and that the two teenagers had exchanged words just before SPENCE was stabbed.
But police said afterwards that the attack on SPENCE was unprovoked. Investigators found a knife in a snowbank near the station.
It's unclear what OPPONG was doing for a living at the time of his slaying yesterday, but police said he was known to them.
Police aren't releasing an alleged motive for the killing but said they have reviewed video-surveillance images from the area and want to talk to five people who were in cars at the time of the death, including a cab driver.
Investigators say they received a 911 call around 3 a.m.
When they arrived, they found OPPONG on the north sidewalk of a Front St. W. address, across from a car dealership, with a gunshot wound to the head. He died while on the way to the hospital.
Yesterday, yellow police tape remained around the scene of the homicide, which included a car, but police would not say whether the vehicle was driven by OPPONG or by one of his killers.
OPPONG is the city's 65th homicide of this year and the 26th victim to die in a shooting.
Police are reviewing OPPONG's movements prior to his death and are asking anyone with information to call 416-808-1404 or Crime Stoppers at 416-222-8477.
