Toronto street shooter: man found on floor identified as young Toronto man

Police say they have identified a man killed in a shooting in Brampton last night as Julian Siddique, 25, from Toronto

A man shot dead last night in Toronto was 22-year-old Julian Siddique, according to police.

Toronto Police said officers were called to a home in Brampton shortly after 8pm.

A witness told the Toronto Star that he heard between six and eight gunshots fired and saw “a guy in his 20s laying on the ground.”

Police said the man was shot by an unknown suspect after an altercation inside the home in Northfield Crescent. A woman and a child were at the home at the time of the shooting.

One neighbour told the Toronto Star that he saw a man rush into the house carrying a blue paper bag, move to another bedroom, and then come out holding a handgun and firing. He could not identify the shooter, but said he was “just a little guy – ripped a CD out of his shirt, very nervous.”

Investigators asked anyone with information on the incident to call investigators at (416) 808-7270 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 416-222-TIPS (8477).
