Driver charged in fatal crash at Royal York and Lawrence

 

 

 

The driver of a stolen taxi cab involved in a three-vehicle crash that killed a man in his 60s and left his 39-year-old daughter in critical condition has been charged.

 

Police say
Abokar Ahmed-Ali
, 23, will face several charges, including:

 

Dangerous driving causing death.

Criminal negligence causing death.

Impaired driving.

Failure to remain at the scene of an accident.

Theft.

 

The collision happened at Royal York Road and Lawrence Avenue West shortly before 8:30 a.m. Monday.

 

A 23-year-old man was driving a taxi cab that had been stolen earlier in a fare dispute.

 

The cab company said the dispute began when the man was upset about his fare. The driver felt threatened, got out of the car and that's when the passenger allegedly climbed into the driver's seat and drove off.

 

The cab ran a red light at Royal York Road and Lawrence Avenue West and struck a pickup truck before flipping over and crashing into a Ford Escape. This sent the Ford into a pole, according to police.

 

The 42-year-old man from the pickup truck was also taken to hospital with what appeared to be minor injuries.

 

The driver of the stolen cab suffered minor injuries. He fled the scene but was arrested nearby.

 

Police say excessive speed was a factor in the crash.

 

 

3 charged with murder in Albion Road shooting

 

Three suspects arrested Monday in connection with the slaying of a 21-year-old man at an apartment building in the city's northwest have been charged with first-degree murder.

 

Toronto Police arrested 19-year-old Emmanuel Ansah around 5:30 p.m. Monday, as well as two minors. All three suspects are from Toronto.

 

The victim, identified as
Yusuf Ahmed
, was found suffering from gunshot wounds to his upper body around 3 p.m. Monday at an apartment building near Albion and Weston roads, in the Rexdale neighbourhood. He was taken to hospital, where he was later pronounced dead.

 

Emmanuel and the two other suspects, who cannot be named under young offenders legislation, were arrested with the co-operation of witnesses, neighbours and security camera footage.

 

The accused were scheduled to appear in court at 2 p.m. today at 2201 Finch Ave. W.

 

This is the city's 36th homicide of the year.

 

 

All in a week's work.

Seems like there is no shortage of excitements or mayhem going on in Toronto. :)

 

What's the background story about the killing of Yusuf Ahmed (AUN). None of the suspects have any Somali sounding names. Was this just being at the wrong place at the wrong time?

The adult guy who shot Yusuf Ahmed is Ghanian from what I understand, and I heard that atleast one of the two minors charged alongside him is Somali (their names were not released). Not much has been said about his background but his being shot in broad daylight outside his apartment building suggests that there must've been some pretty heavy beef for such a brazen shooting.

Yusuf Tifow, 16, identified as boy killed in shooting

 

The teenaged boy killed after being shot in the neck in an apartment on Weston Road late Sunday has been identified by police as 16-year-old Yusuf Tifow.

 

Toronto police released the victim's name Monday afternoon.

 

The teen had no vital signs when he was found just before midnight in a 19th-floor apartment at 2240 Weston Rd.

 

He was rushed to hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

 

No arrests have been made.

 

Police are searching for a single suspect. They are looking at footage from the building's security cameras.

 

A post-mortem examination is being scheduled.

A lot of the homicide victims this year are disturbingly young.

He's being charged with manslaughter, not murder... police seem to believe it was an accidental shooting.

Thanks for the clarification.

 

There have been far too many tragic incidents involving children these past few weeks in Toronto, accidental and otherwise.

His rights, as a convicted drug trafficker ordered deported to Somalia, were deemed more important than the guaranteed safety of Canadian citizens.

 

And so, despite warnings that
Bashir Gaashaan
was a flight risk who posed a danger to the public, Canada’s Immigration and Refugee Board let him go — a freedom that lasted exactly one year and eight months.

 

On June 15, 2011, RCMP in Alberta announced they had arrested Gaashaan, charging him with first-degree murder, unlawful confinement, offering an indignity to human remains, sexual assault and trafficking in cocaine.

 

The body of Jenna Cartwright, 21, a young mom from Red Deer, had been discovered in a ditch near Olds — and police believe the man ordered out of Canada two years earlier killed her.

 

*Sigh*

I know this is off topic, but Toronto police are talking to somali parents from rexdale and dixion areas about their sons on joining the force in the future . I heard their is only like 2 somali police officers in toronto police force, but they said they want ''more''. I doubt that will ever happen though. but they are trying to really really recruit somalis in particular. I only know ''two'' 20 year olds, that are somali guys who are in college taking the Police Foundation course. But I doubt their will ever be 15 police officers of somali decent. Toronto police is only struggling with the Somali Community, and they honestly need help. Too many of the guys that are getting arrested in Toronto, is of the somali decent.
