Toronto Police Release Surveillance Images in Chinatown Murders of Quinn Taylor and David “Mikey” Eminess
In an effort to solve the double murder, Toronto Police have released images of people who were in the area when bullets started flying near Spadina Ave. and Nassau St. around 3:15 a.m. on Jan. 31.
“I believe that these individuals may have some information that can assist in moving this investigation forward,” Homicide Det.-Sgt. Mike Carbone said Wednesday.
He stressed the citizens in the 10 security camera images police released are only persons of interest at this point.
Recapping the deadly shooting, Carbone explained that David Eminess, 26, Quinn Taylor, 29, and a third man were downtown “socializing” on Jan. 30.
In the wee hours of the next morning, the trio headed to the New Ho King restaurant for a bite to eat.
The friends were “involved in an altercation with some unknown individuals” out front of the restaurant, Carbone said. “It is at this point that Mr. Eminess and Mr. Taylor are shot and killed.”
Their friend and two innocent bystanders were wounded. “All three men are now recovering from gunshot wounds,” Carbone said.
There was lots of vehicle and pedestrian traffic in the area at the time. Restaurants were mostly packed. Taxis were dropping off and picking up fares. And TTC passengers were hopping on and off of streetcars.
Carbone believes some of those people hold the key to solving the city’s eighth and ninth murders of the year.
He urged the citizens seen in the security camera images to call the Homicide Unit at 416-808-7400 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
