London police officers are on the lookout for three men believed to be involved in a targeted east-end shooting that resulted in the death of a 21-year-old man.

At about 2:30 p.m. on Wednesday, authorities were called to the incident at Tim Hortons on Dundas Street, west of Veterans Memorial Parkway.

Police said one man was found inside the coffee shop suffering from a gunshot wound.

The victim was identified early Thursday as 21-year-old Christopher Clements-Card.

Three unidentified men involved in the incident remain at large.

Since his death, family and friends have set up an online fundraiser in Clements' name to cover the cost of his funeral. The webpage describes the 21-year-old as "a true friend! A caring brother! A loving son, nephew and A devoted Uncle."

"Love u family gone but I will never forget your name will see u in heaven gates when my time is up till than we wait," wrote Ivan Eustace​ on Facebook in the hours after Clements' death.

CBC News has attempted to reach out to friends and family members of the victim.

Victim known to police

According to court documents, the victim of the shooting was convicted for drug possession two years ago after he was rounded up along with eight other people in a police anti-gang sweep. 

The police raid, which took place November 4, 2016 at a home on Adelaide Street North, ended in the arrests of four women and four men, including Clements. The raid netted officers more than half a kilo of crystal methamphetamine, nearly 70 grams of cocaine and more than 50 rounds of rim fire rifle ammunition.

According to Clements' 49-page court record, the 21-year-old was also convicted for drug possession in connection with the police raid and given a 10-year weapons ban by the court back in June. His legal history also includes matters before the courts involving assault, minor drug possession and breach of a court order.
