Police have issued a Canada-wide warrant for a 17-year-old in connection with the fatal shooting of a cab driver in Toronto’s east end.
The incident occurred around 8:50 p.m. on Oct. 24 near Pharmacy and Eglinton avenues. Police say they were called to the scene after receiving a report that a taxi had crashed into a fence.
When officers arrived at the scene, they discovered the driver had sustained multiple gunshot wounds and was unconscious.
Beck Taxi confirmed that Jung was an employee and had driven a cab for over 40 years.
On Friday, police said they obtained judicial authorization to identify a suspect in connection with the case. Toronto resident Isaiah Twyman, 17, is wanted for second-degree murder in connection with the shooting.
Police say the suspect is believed to be “armed, violent and dangerous.” Anyone who sees him is being urged to call 911 immediately.
