Police ID 28-year-old shot to death near financial district restaurant
Police are looking for 3 suspects in connection with the shooting
Toronto police have identified the man shot to death near a financial district restaurant Sunday as Jaiden Jackson.
Police say Jackson, 28, was at Pick 6, a newly opened restaurant and sports bar co-owned by the rapper Drake and his head of security, when he left with an unidentified woman around 9 p.m.
The pair was walking west on the north side of Wellington Street, just west of Yonge Street, when a black, four-door Honda Civic swung toward them.
Police say two men got out and opened fire.
Jackson fled into a nearby parking garage, police say, but the driver and two gunmen chased him down. After "numerous" shots were fired, police say, the suspects fled and were last seen heading west on Wellington.
When officers arrived, they found Jackson in critical condition. Police say he had been shot many times.
He was taken to a trauma centre but died of his injuries.
Jackson is the 31st homicide victim of 2018.
