It's fair to say 2019 has been a truly awful year for gun crime in Toronto and the surrounding area. On Wednesday, September 24, yet another victim was found as what appears to have been an Etobicoke shooting left a man dead in a parking lot. Toronto Police say that though the man died from gunshot wounds, no gunfire was heard despite the victim being found in a heavily-populated residential area.\nAccording to Global News, Toronto Police Duty Insp. Darren Alldrit told reporters a passerby stumbled across the victim lying on the ground in the rear parking lot of the residential area of Rathburn Road and The West Mall, just west of Highway 427. City News reports the parking lot was at the back of 454 The West Mall.\nAccording to CP24, a witness was walking his dog when he saw a body lying on the ground in the lot. The witness said he initially thought it was a person working underneath a vehicle before his dog sprinted toward the body.\nThe witness saw blood and then realized the man had been shot several times. He added that he noticed several shell casings were lying on the ground next to him.\nUPDATE - SHOOTING: @TPS22Div. Victim located, vital signs absent.
