Police are looking for two suspects in their 20s who killed 45-year-old John Wheeler with a single gunshot to the back of his head outside his apartment in the area of Danforth Road and Eglinton Avenue East on Wednesday.

On Friday, police released four videos from the night. Between them, they show the two suspects and the victim, who was waiting for aride to work at around 3:30 a.m., as well as a suspect vehicle.

"This was a horrific, cowardly and uncalled for act against Mr. Wheeler, Det.-Sgt. Ted Lioumanis said on Friday afternoon, per CTV News. "He did not deserve this. Nobody deserves to die, to get shot and die in our city."

Lioumanis added: "Right now in the investigation there is nothing to show any type of criminality on Mr. Wheeler’s part. I think wrong place, wrong time."

Police are asking anyone with information to come forward.
