Taylor Morrow-Flint shot and killed on Ritchie Street
Morrow's death is Ottawa's 2nd homicide this week, 4th of 2016
A young man was shot and killed on Ritchie Street in Ottawa's west end Wednesday night, the city's fourth homicide of the year and second of the week.
Taylor Morrow-Flint, 20, died at the scene, police said.
Officers responded to a home in the 80 block of Ritchie Street around 7:30 p.m., said Staff Sgt. Bruce Pirt of the Ottawa police major crimes unit.
There are no suspects in custody and no suspect descriptions, Pirt said.
No one else was injured.
Nothing yet to suggest 2 homicides related
Police are interviewing witnesses and are asking anyone with information to call the major crimes unit at 613-236-1222, extension 5493.
Mohamed Ali Hassan, 19, was stabbed to death in an Overbrook park two days earlier.
Michael Leblanc, a 26-year-old Ottawa resident, has been charged with second-degree murder in relation to Monday's homicide.
Pirt said they always explore the idea that violent crimes are related but there's nothing to suggest Wednesday's killing is linked to anything else.
