Man fatally shot outside Toronto bakery identified as 37-year-old Farogh Sadat
Sadat, from British Columbia, was found with numerous gunshot wounds in vehicle Friday
Toronto police have identified a man fatally shot outside a bakery in the city's Corso Italia neighbourhood as 37-year-old Farogh Sadat.
In a news release Tuesday, police say officers arrived at the scene on St. Clair Avenue West just after 11:30 a.m. Friday to find Sadat inside a vehicle with numerous gunshot wounds.
Sadat, a British Columbia man, died at the scene.
"It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Brother Farogh Sadat," said the Muslim Association of Hamilton in a statement announcing an event to commemorate his life.
The association said Sadat is survived by his wife, Lida Faiz.
On Friday, more than dozen bullet markers were seen in the area, surrounded by residential streets and usually bustling with shoppers around lunchtime. A white SUV with California licence plates could be seen outside a bakery, with its driver's side window blown out.
Police said last week they were searching for two possible suspects, who are believed to have fled the area in a four-door sedan.
Investigators are still appealing to anyone with dashcam footage or who might have seen anything out of the ordinary that morning to contact police at 416-808-7400 or leave an anonymous tip with Crime Stoppers by calling 1-800-222-8477.
