Christopher Teape, 25, identified as victim of targeted triple shot in Toronto



A family member identified Christopher Teape as one of two men killed in a triple shot in northwest Toronto over the long weekend.

Teape and two other men were shot outside a residential area on Emmett Avenue, near Jane Street and Weston Road, just before 1:30 am on Saturday.

Teape, 25, was taken to hospital, where he was later pronounced dead.

Ahmed Mohamud, 32, was pronounced dead on the scene, according to police.

The third went to a local hospital with serious but life-threatening injuries.

Teape used a wheelchair that could be seen in photographs taken in the building after the shot.

A potential suspect was seen running westwards at the moment after the gunfire rang out. Saunders described him as a man about six feet long with a muscular building and short dreadlocks about three or four inches long.

Const. Toronto police spokesman David Hopkinson asked the public to share good information with the police.

"We are looking for help from the public to try to identify a person who killed two people and put another in hospital with gunshot wounds. This is someone we need to go out into the streets and at the courts," he said.

Friends and neighbors were stopped by a memorial for Teape and the other victims outside the highrise all morning and afternoon on Sunday.

Quyana Sutherland said she met Teape in high school and called him a "kind soul".

"He never pulled anyone down. He was always there. Whether it was advice, something," she said.

"He doesn't deserve this. He doesn't deserve it at all".

The protection occurred just before 1:30 am on Saturday. (Jeremy Cohn / CBC)
