Man, 21, identified as Toronto’s latest murder victim

The north end of a a parking lot behind an apartment at Jane St. and Queens Dr., south of Hwy. 401, remained cordoned off on Saturday, April 17, 2021., the day after Durham's Drai Hugh Wilson, 21, was gunned down in the parking lot.

A 21-year-old man has been identified as the victim of Friday night’s deadly shooting in North York.

Toronto Police say Drai Hugh Wilson, 21, of Durham Region, was found around 6:45 p.m. in critical condition near 1855 Jane — in the area of Jane St. and Queens Dr. — after reports of multiple gunshots in the area.

Wilson was rushed to hospital where he died.

As the investigation continued Saturday morning, yellow crime tape cordoned off the parking lot where the victim was found and a car was removed by a police tow truck.

The car being removed for forensic testing is a four-door charcoal black Lexus sport coupe with a gaping bullet hole in the rear door on the driver’s side.

Police tape also surrounded another area off of Queens Dr. that leads down to the Black Creek, where it is believed the shooter or shooters fled after the killing.

Another shooting took place at 7 p.m. Friday near Wilson Ave. and Ridge Rd., about a kilometre away from the murder scene.

Police say a man was able to make his way to hospital to be treated for a gunshot wound, but they don’t know yet if the two incidents are connected.

The investigation into the city’s 21st murder of the year is ongoing.

Police are appealing for witnesses or anyone who was in the area at the time of the shooting to come forward.

“It was still light out yesterday around the time of the shooting,” Const. Caroline de Kloet said Saturday. “We are confident somebody has seen something and hope they will contact police.”

Anyone with information is asked to call police at 416-808-7400 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800–222-TIPS (8477).
