Investigators have released security video footage of three suspects wanted in connection with the murder of a teenager on Sunday, October 16.

At approximately 1.40 a.m., Jarryl Hagley, 17 – who was with a group of four friends inside a pizza store at 1937 Weston Rd. – was shot when gunmen opened fire on his group of friends. He succumbed to his injuries in hospital.

At a news conference at police headquarters on October 21, Detective Paul Worden said two males entered the store and opened fire on the table where Hagley and his friends were eating.

“One male was with a sawed off shot gun and the other had a hand gun,” he said. “They were in the store for approximately five seconds before fleeing.”

Worden believes the group was targeted because of some ongoing dispute.

When the shots rang out, Hagley and his friends fled to a nearby washroom in a hallway to escape their attackers.

“Once in the washroom, it became apparent Jarryl had been shot,” said Worden. “He was rushed to Sunnybrook where he succumbed to his injuries. None of the other people he was with was injured”

Security cameras from area storeowners, private citizens and Toronto Community Housing show a timetable of the suspects arriving in the general area of the murder, how they approached the pizza store and the route they took when running from the store back to their vehicle.

“Three males exited the vehicle and at least one person remained in it,” noted Worden.

Investigators believe the vehicle might be a Toyota RAV4.

“We are not 100 per cent sure, but this is our strong belief,” Worden said of the car.

He said the vehicle had a roof rack, sun roof, a spare tire mounted to the rear and the license plate was to the left.

The third male, who police believe was the lookout, didn’t enter the store.

Investigators want to hear from anyone who may know the identity of the suspects or were in the area at the time of the shooting.
