Alfredo Patriarca, 42, was found shot to death in the garage of his rented house near Princess Margaret Boulevard and Kipling Avenue shortly before 6:30 p.m. on Jan. 20.
"I do believe that this was targeted and I do believe that someone was waiting for his arrival home," Det.-Sgt. Joyce Schertzer said at a Wednesday news conference.
In the video, a suspect is seen arriving shortly after Patriarca drives into his garage. The suspect is seen walking along the fence line and cut right into the garage.
The suspect then emerges from the garage seconds later.
"People did hear gunshots in the area," Schertzer said, adding that the victim received first aid immediately following the shooting.
Police say they have yet to identify a motive.
"It's a very fluid investigation and we're open to all possibilities," Schertzer said.
Police were unable to provide any identifying details about the suspect. The suspect is seen wearing a fur-trimmed hooded parka that appears to be light-coloured, but Schertzer cautioned it could be a darker colour due to the nature of surveillance footage.
"I'm hoping that maybe this image would resonate with somebody," she said.
Last week, CBC News reported that Patriarca was previously wounded in a high-profile homicide allegedly connected to organized crime.
Patriarca was one of two men shot in the summer of 2012 as they sat together on the crowded patio of a College Street cafe.
