Yesterday, a 16-year-old teenager allegedly wreaked havoc on Toronto's West Flea Market.

They came to the scene and found the victim without vital signs. It was confirmed that Scavetta died at the scene. 

One witness reported to CP24 that the shooting was a result of a robbery. The suspect shot his gun twice into the market. Reports claim that people nearby ran away for safety, so the market was likely busy at the time. 

Witnesses claim that the suspect "walked calmly" away from the market. Since then, Police have captured the suspect and taken him into custody.  Since he is only 16-years-old, his identity has not been released under the Youth Criminal Justice Act.
